    I harvested some water today. It tastes great, smells a little highish in sulfur. It’s very close to a high traffic road and it seems like there could be the possibility of run-of contamination. The rubber hose isn’t too appealing but there is no noticeable taste from it as it’s pretty short and the water flows quickly. It would be nice to see the TDS and pH as well as contaminant test results for this spring. I’ll see about getting a sample tested if I can and report back.

      Hello! Just wondering if you are still drinking this water & whether you got a sample tested. If not could you tell me where to do this myself? Would love any additional info. on this water.

        Hi Lucy, I’m not still drinking this water as I live in B.C. I drank it exclusively for two weeks without any problems. Unfortunately I never ended up bringing a sample back home to get tested. The Peterborough Utilities Commission might be a good place to ask about having water tested locally.

    I spoke with the owner today and he has this water tested every two months. Every test has come back zero E. Coli and zero contaminants. He will not vouch for your container however.

    There is some contest between him and some local authority. They have prohibited parking in front and beside his house and regularly hand out tickets because its marked!

    He even invited me to use his driveway. He cleaned up cigarette butts while he spoke with me. I can’t believe how inconsiderate people could be!

    He has a donation box. Donate well.
