Please rate this spring

Just about 100 feet south of public parking lot near entrance of NYS fish hatchery. As you face the parking lot from Fish Hatchery Road, the spring will be to the right of the parking lot.

    Just wondering if anyone has been to this spring and if so, what’s it like? Is it easy to find? Thanks!

    I have been getting my water here for about 2 months, until I recently found a spring a fraction of the distance from my home, located in Clyde, NY (hopefully the information for this new find will be available on this site soon). Once you realize that the spring is located in the parking lot for the fish hatchery, it is pretty easy to find. The parking lot and fish hatchery are well marked, close to the road, and easy to see. Once you pull into the parking lot, look at the drive way on the right that runs from the parking lot to the fish hatchery building. The spring is located on the right side of this driveway and is easy to see. Everyone in my home drank this water daily for 2 months and seemed to tolerate it fine (1 adult female, 1 adult male, 2 teenaged girls, 1 dog & 1 cat).

      Jennifer, are you talking about the spring in Port Byron? I saw it on the map but when I street view the area I have no idea where it is located. Would you be able to explain clearly for me? I’d love to try it as I’m in Auburn. Thanks!

    There is a bug wooden sign and the water is down a small path 20 feet from parking lot. It’s right out in the open. Been drinking this water for 20 years. Tastes great.

    Jennifer where in Clyde Ny do you go ? Do you have address ? That would be much closer for me…thanks

    This spring was in existance back in the 50’s and 60’s when I was a child. My Grandmother used to come here to fill up water bottles with drinking water. There used to be a large artesian well (w/gyser) to the right of the bridge (across the creek). Last time I was in the area back in ’04 a wooden structure had been built over this well site.

    Your marker on the attached topography is incorrect. The Fish Hatchery parking lot is NE of this marker approx 1 mile. You can locate the hatchery which is NW of the hospital (just down the hill)

    Does anyone know how long the fish hatchery will have this spring closed for?
    Saw a sign 2 weeks ago getting water there that it would be closed for some construction on the path

    Been drinking this water for years and know lots of people that do too. Unfortunately I moved a couple hours away and I miss this freezing cold, crystal clear purportedly artisan well water.
