    It’s a pretty great spring. Used to get water from it when I was a kid.

  2. Colonics4life says:

    is it consider spring water or is it treated?  the color was clear when I got it but now that it is sitting for a day the color has changed, is the water in East Hampton Safe?

  3. Ken says:

    Just filled up today, still has the sulfur smell (I love it) and water was clear as can be!

    Filled up last Saturday.  Spoke with a DEP employee just leaving the park.  He explained that the water from the spring is tested weekly and that it is safe to drink.  This is true even thouogh some municipal E.H. water is not.  I asked about the sulfur, and his reply was that “it never hurts to boil water.”  After 2 days wrapped in a towel, but no cork, the water in my 5-gallon glass bottle had a distinctive yellow tint.  My google research assures me that this poses no heath risk.  Personally, though, and from an aesthetic perspective, I’ll take a pass on yellow water.  But that’s just me.  Here’s a picture of the spring.

    I have been very excited and interested in finding a spring to go but
    unfortunately I have yet to find one in CT that hasn’t either been
    closed or contains peoples comments that scare me away.One of my favorites is the comment stating that one of the springs is really just a pipe hooked up to a local cow pond! WTF!?

    I haven’t even been able to find any clean or open springs in the surrounding states either, based on this database.

    My goal in doing this is for improved health, as I would imagine is
    everyone’s reason for doing this, so I would like to know that the water
    that I am drinking is actually healthy.

    Does anyone know of a spring that is truly clean and safe to drink from around here?

    How does one get to True Blessing Spring in Monson, MA?

  7. Ali Beale says:

    What’s the best containers to use for filling? I love the idea of getting my own water but don’t want to fill in plastics!

  8. michael says:

    Why do they keep shutting this spring down every summer.This is BS!

  9. Baldev says:

    Is the pipe that the water flows thru made of metal or plastic? Thanks

  10. John says:

    Was just there last week of oct 2016 and it wasnt running. Can anyone confirm if its running again now?

  11. AT says:

    Does anyone know if the spring is running again? Went there in October but it was dry as a bone. Assuming the recent drought conditions have brought it to a halt.

  12. ACT says:

    Is this site still functioning? Was there in early November 2016 and the pipe was dry. Since my trek to get there is ~ 90 minutes could anyone please relay if the water is running?

    Thanks,
    Anthony

    This spring is a lot less than 1/4 mile onto gulf road. It’s basically once you pull in, maybe a 5 second drive from the turn into the road. It has a sulfur smell but no taste.
