The most incredible TRUE natural spring that we’ve found in Ontario, so far. Beautiful surroundings, very low TDS, cold, clean and great tasting. It’s high state of vitality is seen in it’s shimmering energetic violet-bluish colour. The water sample I took shows ZERO on both Total Coliform & E. Coli. This magical water is exactly what we should be putting into our bodies.

    Do you have email or a website that we can contact you?

    I went to one hardware store and found some corks, but they were in these banker boxes full of dirt and looked like they've been there since 1922. When I got them wet, the paper towels they were on turned yellow. I added more water and let them sit on the counter. As the water drained off, there was a pool of yellow water underneath them.

    I bought some corks at another hardware store. The price sticker was on the side of the cork where it seals with the bottle. There was something that looked like a piece of celophane around the cork, so I surmised it was just that. However, when I got home, I realized that it was actually celophane tape. When I peeled, the entire side of the cork was full of this sticky crap from the tape. Needless to say, I didn't use them.

    How hard can it possibly be to get clean corks?! Anybody have any good cork sources?

    Hi Todd,

    Awesome to hear! I haven't been back there since March 2010 but looks I'm going back in the next few days – I'm literally dreaming of this water on a daily basis… simply the BEST!

  5. Olga says:

    Went there few days ago, got 50 liters of water. Tastes absolutely amazing! I recommend everyone goes there and harvest this beautiful water! and not in plastic bottles pliiiiiz! Met couple of ppl there who were filling up 50 small plastic bottles!!( Yuk.

  6. Reza says:

    Finally received my carboy’s that I ordered to collect the 70 litres of this amazing water in last week, and so far I really feel much more alive than ever drinking this water!!
    Thank you mother nature.
    Thank you

    I’m planning on making a detour to this spring in the next few weeks on my way to Toronto from Sudbury. I usually go by Hwy 69/ 400 but I think if I turn off in Parry Sound or a little past Parry Sound and head for Hwy 11 it shouldn’t be too much of a detour but what i’m wondering is if its in a very desolate area. Does anyone know if there are a lot of homes nearby, what about cell phone signal if i get lost? I’d appreciate any information!

  8. Mark says:

    I was at a cottage a week ago and we made a trip up to collect some of this water. Needless to say it was the best water I’ve ever had and I will be returning in the future to collect as much of it as possible. I’m envious of the people right next door who can walk to collect this water if they wanted, what an amazing feeling that must be.

    If you plan on spending some time there I strongly suggest bringing some sort of insect repellent (DEET free of course) because the mosquitoes are firmly in control of the area hahaha.

    • David says:

      I was just there a week ago and the mosquitos are certainly in control.  The water was fantastic.  I have never had such spectacular water.  Unfortunetely it is so far away 🙁

  9. Zoran says:

    I just filled up at least 42 L of water from the spring today, it tastes wonderful and ive seen 2 people come and go to fill up while i was there. If one is planning to go during summer i highly recommend some bug protecting clothing like mesh hats and cover all skin cuz they definitely do control the area like Mark Said lol. Im not sure about the most recent testing but a local said it was perfect and they use it as there primary source  🙂

    I LOVE THIS SPRING and regularly drive 3 hours from Toronto to collect it.  The GPS address is 604 Rochester Lake Road, Perry ON.  I just tested this water with C.O.A.L. and the test came back 0 Coliform and 0 E.Coli.  I LOVE THIS WATER!!!!

    We mention the amazing Kearney spring a lot in this video:

    This water is amazing! We just went there to get 140 liters for the winter for my mom who is fighting cancer. She has been drinking it since July after her chemo treatments. It is hard to say if it really helps her to fight cancer, but doctors are very pleased with the result after 3 chemos. So maybe it is a good combination of traditional treatment with treatment by mother Nature. I strongly recommend this water to everyone.

  13. sofree says:

    found a great source for 3 gal (11l) carboys, handles and clean corks – Macedo Wines at 30 Ossington, just north of Queen, Toronto 416-537-0416

  14. Brooke says:

    Is this spring accessible all year round? What about snow fall? Thinking of going in February. Thanks.

  15. Marc says:

    Heard about this spring while watching the video for the Puslinch spring, searched it up and we were very pleased to see it is right smack on the route to our cottage! Well lucky for us, we were going to our cottage this week, so we stopped along the way with three 5 gallon aquapacks.

    Like others have already said, the water is outstanding. Simply put, it’s amazing. It’s as good as Fiji water (my favourite bottled water) if not better. Our aunt didn’t quite understand why we had brought it to the cottage, and we caught her using it as dish water!! No! So we made another stop on our way home to replenish the wasted water. She also told us that her friend lives literally around the corner and she’s always wondered why the towns water tasted so pure, must be on the same aquifer. Looking forward to stopping at this spring again next time we head up! Refreshing!

    I have been visiting this spring for over a year, but when I went yesterday, the water is now cloudy 🙁
    I will test through Public Health for eColi and Coliforms, however I suspect the contamination is from road runoff (chemical). I am accepting donations towards a full analysis with C.O.A.L (cost is $141, goal is to raise 50% ). if you love this spring as much as I do, please help me out and send a small donation to
    I will post results on this site and post a new sign at the spring site.

  17. Sheri says:

    Tested the water sample taken 03/31. Evidence of bacterial contamination: Total coliform per 100ml: 13 – May be unsafe to drink

  18. Helene says:

    Just got some water there today May 11 ’14 the sign said it had been tested May 6th 2014 and results were 0/0 Yay!!!

    • razz says:

      Just got water from there yesterday. Saw the sign also regarding 0/0 results. ButtBut the post above makes me wonder regarding contaminating. Wish there was a results post feature for the springs here. Perhaps onto google docs. Guess there is no sure way to know if the water is safe. Been drinking it for a day so far.

  19. Lindsay says:

    I would love to carpool with someone to get some water from this spring. I normally get from the belfountain spring but this one seems way better. I am in Brampton.

  20. razz says:

    Do you guys boil this water? I’ve been drinking it without boiling it. I don’t know if my body is not used to it, but stomach feels little different when drinking it. Does ones body/stomach need to get use to it or should it be boiled before drinking?

    • Lindsay says:

      Hi Razz,
      I regularly get my water from the belfountain spring but i never boil it, if you do that then you will just eliminate all the good minerals.
      Why are you driving from up to Kearney?

  22. man says:

    my guess is that some people with ill intentions are spreading propaganda about the safety of this spring and all others. I think this water is safe now and always was.

  23. Man says:

    heading up to kearney this week.

  24. Man says:

    some people watch tell-a-vision for 3 hours at a time…..some drive 3 hours for water.

  25. Man says:

    I was at the spring several days ago, and i smell sulfur, although the odour wasn’t strong. Very clear, but has an astringent effect on the mouth and a tad bitter. My guess its the sulfur. Sulfur can have this effect. I’m in the process of doing a complete analysis…..and i do mean complete. I’m still drinking it, but still notice the faint smell of sulfur in my carboys when first opened.

  26. Man says:

    O.k so i had the analysis done and this what i got:
    Zero E.coli, Zero total Coliform.Lead, arsenic,mercury, iron.. all very low, well below ODWS standards. In fact it crushes them. Slight Sulphur smell at spring but the test results indicate extremely low levels. Again meeting ODWS. I did not have the water tested for cyanide, although i wanted to, i wasn’t informed that it was not included with the test- why i don’t know. I thought i had everything covered. I had it tested for almost everything, sodium, fluoride, uranium, calcium… name it. But not cyanide. I’ve been drinking it for 2.5 weeks without problems. Its damn clean. I did my part, now pass it forward…..not pay it, pass it! If anyone has questions, please feel free to post them here and i will definitely try to answer. Enjoy

  27. Man says:

    I’m in Woodbridge. I’m not sure if i’ll be going anytime soon, because i still have about 3 or 4 weeks or so worth of water.. Right now i’m keeping it in my cellar and garage, but heading into spring its going to be harder to keep cold. Its uncertain if i will be heading back this spring, but for sure fall and winters. I will let you know via this website whether or not i’m heading out this spring.

  28. Man says:


    fluoride:<0.05 of fluoride mg/l

    sodium fluoride or silicofluorides, are industrial products never found in natural water or in organisms. They are, furthermore, notoriously toxic, sufficiently so to be used as rat poison or insecticide. Calcium fluoride, on the other hand, which is the form commonly found in natural waters, is not toxic enough for such uses." — Dr. C. G. Dobbs, (Ph.D., A.R.C.S.) Bangor, Wales, England.

  29. Man says:

    i assume that the fluoride in this water is calcium fluoride. Another thing to not is that the lab report has it at less than 0.05mg/l. So it could be 0.02 or not even there at all.

  30. Man says:

    just over $200 for A FULL ANALYSIS, but there were way cheaper options. i just chose the full.

  31. dave says:

    does anyone from Hamilton go up to the spring would like to carpool and save on gas

  32. MAN says:

    No, I don’t think a tds of 350 is unsafe. Look at tap water, I believe its much higher than that.
    I won’t be going up this summer. its too hard to keep water in warm temps.

  33. razz says:

    Hi Folks, I live in Bolton, Ontario. And thinking of making a trip to fill up on water. Is the spring accessible in the winter? Does it ice up, do I need to bring an ax with me? 🙂

    • MAN says:

      Yes it is accessible in winter. No it won’t ice up no matter how cold it gets. Don’t get to close to the edge of the road, I git stuck last winter. slight sulphur smell, no worries its safe. Just keep the containers open for a bit before closing or keep in glass for a few minutes before drinking.

  34. razz says:

    Do you guys boil this water? I’ve been drinking it for about 2 years and do not boil it, unless making tea/cooking with it. Everything seems fine. I’m just always concerned with contamination. How often should a water source be tested? Is it possible for the water conditions to fluctuate regularly?

  35. Jess says:

    Has anyone been at this spring within the past few months? I live quite a distance away, but if this is the real deal, I’d make the trip!

  36. Liz says:

    Have you found any springs or artesian wells in or near Sudbury, ON? If so, would you share about their quality and locations?

  37. Anna_Sl says:

    Went to the spring today which is 190 km from us. We thought that we’ll be alone in this weather. No way. 3 cars came to refill while we were filling up our 200 liters. They said that it is always busy there and it’s a very popular place. We love this water. I can submit a photo but not sure how.

  38. Melissa says:

    Went out there this past weekend and was welcomed with a bunch of ice on the hill. This early in the season, I would recommend bringing a bit of sand! I AM a bit skiddish as I broke my ankle last year, but let’s stay safe out there!

    A big shout out to the 2 different gentlemen that helped me bring up my water bottles. I’m not sure how long it would have taken me without their help! I love this water community!

    I’ve been toying around with a house water filtration system and had the water man check the Kearney Springs (magic) water while he was at our house. I’ve linked the picture of both the magic water (left) and my tap water (right). Of course, the tint is the chemicals he adds in to draw out the gunk, but he said that he’s never seen a natural source as “stellar” as this one.

    Let me know if any of your crazy kids think it would be worth it to open a facebook page dedicated to this spring. There are A LOT of us that travel from the GTA and it would be neat to have a resource or potential car pool buddies.

  39. Connor says:

    Has anyone used this source recently? The last post was in 2017. Is it still drinkable?
