    Does anyone have recent test results for the spring water?

  2. Kim Plaster says:

    Can anyone confirm this spring is still open to the public? Will be driving by tomorrow.

    I located this spring on 3/1/2016 and collected water. I also conducted testing before drinking any. My sister was helping and she commented there was a strong manure odor coming from the fenced pasture nearby. I am sad to report I read the 48 hr Coliform Bacteria Test this morning (3/3/2016) and it was positive. I will not be drinking this water.
    All other tests were negative or in range for safe drinking.
