Description

Mountain runoff coming through pvc piping. Fresh clean amazing cold water!

This water is fantastic! It’s free and can be busy on the weekends. I’ve met and talked to others who have been drinking it for the last year or so. Some have tested the quality and say it’s very good.

Nearest Address

From Mission, 30 minutes East on Hwy 7, on the side of the mountain. From Abbotsford, if taking Hwy #1, about 1 hour. Take Bridal Falls exit past Chilliwack and follow signs for Hwy #7 West. Its marked by a yellow sign on a post on the side of the hwy.

Directions from Nearest Address

From Hwy #1 heading East, take Bridal Falls exit #135, about 10 minutes past Chilliwack. Pass Minter Gardens and follow the signs for Hwy #7 West for another 15 to 20 minutes. You’ll go through a small town called Agassiz. Eventually, you’ll pass a huge dairy farm on the right and the road will start to take you up a mountain. The spring is 3-4 minutes from the dairy farm. Look for a yellow sign on a post as the spring is kind of hidden (see pix). There’s room for a few vehicles to pull over on the side right next to the spring. Apparently there used to be a big statue that spouted water out but they took it down a while ago. If you’re coming from Mission, take the #7 East; it’s about a 30 minute drive. The spring will be on your left; if you descend the mountain, you’ve gone too far and passed it! Look for the little yellow sign on the post.

    I just got the water analysis back on this spring, dated 6 July 2011. Total Coliforms are deemed high, with a reading of 15, (e-coli was <1.0). All the other levels are below maximum accepted concentrations guidelines as outlined by the Exova lab in Langley. Wikipedia suggests that high levels of coliform bacteria aren't necessary bad but may indicate the presence of pathogens (which aren't tested for). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fecal_coliform
    Check out this link for a reasonable explanation. http://www.oasisdesign.net/water/quality/coliform.htm
    I will attempt to post the entire lab analysis soon.

    Don’t let anyone scare you into not drinking from this spring.  My family and I and many others have been harvesting it for a decades now on a bi-weekly basis and have it tested somewhat regularly and never has it shown anything harmful in this water.  In fact it is quite the opposite, in my opinion it is some of the cleanest, purest water on this earth and I feel blessed to have it in my life as part of my nutritional strategy.  Try it yourself!

    Water is good right now with winter run off take care. Its always a good practice to boil water from these sources. Trying to find out what municipality cover that area will try kent you would hope they were testing this on a regular
    Basis. I dont recall a sign but as your going a long #7 towards mission from agassiz the first moutain climb round a couple of bends you will come to a pull off on the left slow down it on the right after a couple of bends little pull off on right. This is a bad little mountain for bad fatal accidents please be careful traffic can be pretty speedy both ways water tasted good I live in harrison hot springs last couple of years go by this spot often. God bless drive safe good luck
    I am going to use this water in my bone broths

    Hi Is this spring still available and open to the public? Thanks Trish

  10. Trish says:

    Piping in the picture must have been ripped out. Directions are accurate. No way of accessing the water before it runs across the ground etc

    Just went to this spring today. Water is clean and cold. The directions on this site aren’t the greatest, so ill see if i can explain it better. If youre coming from agassiz, follow lougheed west towards mission. As you start driving up the mountain, there is a passing lane. Continue past the passing lane and it will be on the north side of the highway a km or two up. There will be a widened shoulder, where you will see two wooden boards leading to a wooden pallet, right in front of the running spring. There is also a driveway with a gate a few hundred meters past the spring.
