“The picture of me filling a jug from the spring is about 1989 but I believe it still exists. ” – Michael A. Dentzer

Description:

Self Pumping from Aquifer that comes form below Mt. Baldy and the Mogollon rim. This was once a Govermnet run Fish hatchery. The fish and the govt, have long gone But As far as I know the water still comes up into the spring from the Aquifer. It is usually about 45 degrees and pure.And is very accessible.just walk about 300 feet from the end of the road and You will see a concrete pipe about 6″in diameter coming out of the mountainside. You can verify this by calling the Greer Chamber of Commerce. (928) 735-7799 Kay Zahn

    Today September 14 2015, I found the spring once you get to the end of road. There is public bathrooms and it is about 200 to 300 hundred feet past it. Also about 40 to 50 ft from the creek. Water is still there fresh and about 45°

    Hello,,
    I own a bottling company in North Las Vegas and I am in need of Spring Water by the bulk. It would be ongoing and would need up to 25 tankers a month and possibly more. Please let me know if we can work something out.
    Thank you,
    Baze
