      spring water would be the best water you could drink.

        this website is lame, posting about springs that are not accessible to the public or that are contaminated. this is the second spring I’ve clicked on that I can’t get water from!!

        • Ashley Knight says:

          All springs that are entered are from people who have visited these springs, we cannot guarantee the safety of any spring. We trust that those who enter springs are entering springs that are safe and well loved, this is not always the case. We do the best we can to get the information out there about springs from fellow spring hunter’s comments. There are many wonderful springs on this site. I hope you find another and have success. -Ashley and The Find a Spring Team

            Thank you so much for the information on this site! Such important work that you are doing!

            What is a spring in Los Angeles that is being used without issues being reported about? This one does not appear to be too good — at least per some of the comments, although they are old. Thank you!

    • Jeff says:

      Mariana, You should find out about the spring first. Some springs are high in minerals which are fine for healthy bodies, but may cause interactions with already existing conditions. Might not kill ya, might just slow ya down.

  5. joe says:

    does anyone have any further details as to where this spring is

  6. Chrissy says:

    This should be corrected to CALABASAS, not Calibasa..!! 🙂

    • Ashley Knight says:

      Thank you! We’ve updated 🙂

      • Daniel says:

        @ashley knight can we get an exact location?

        • Ashley Knight says:

          Hello! I’m afraid I can not give you an exact location. We only approve the springs that are uploaded to our site by people who find these springs, so we have not been to many of the springs ourselves or know of their exact location. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

          Is there anyone that has directions for this spring that can help out?

  7. Richard says:

    Is this a spring that we can go and get some water? Is that even possible if you live in Los Angeles? Can we call them?

  8. Daniel says:

    Thanks anyway!!! Do you know of any good springs in the LA area???

  9. DJD says:

    Try the spring in Springville, Angelenos! It’s three hours away but well worth the trip.

  10. interested says:

    hey can someone please tell me how we really know where this comes from? to me, water coming out of a pipe is not a spring, yes? i mean, how do we know how clean the pipes are and where they lead to? how do we even know this water is safe to drink, it might be contaminated run off water or sewer water yes? should i contact the city of calabasas, do you think they would be able to tell me where it comes from? i will do that : )

  11. Laurie says:

    DJD or anyone,

    Where is the Springville Angelenos Spring?
    Thank you

    If it is closed due to “snail infestation”, it could be one of several invasive species the state is desperately trying to eradicate. The New Zealand mudsnail is a very tiny snail, but it breeds quickly and can block drains and pipes. It is spread by boats, waders, and fishing gear that isn’t cleaned properly.
    The golden apple snail is also a problem in California.

    So while this spring may not have any snails, the state apparently wants to keep it that way by limiting access.

    Cold Creek is in the wooded part of Calabasas. You can get there by way of Mulholland Hwy. Spring water is amazing for you! DO NOT DRINK the water from this spring until the area is fixed up though.

  14. Charles says:

    Anyone have any updates on this location? is it still closed?

  15. Micky says:

    On a bike ride going up Stunt Rd years back, I spotted a pool of water along the side of the road. Water was seeping out of the hillside and collecting in a small pool that was created by the piling of rocks and sand by someone. I’ve drank the water from there many times. My guess is that is the run off from the spring, located uphill from that spot.
