This spring is located between a small bridge crossing over the Green River and the Green River Gorge Resort. Many people come to harvest the water for resale but others come to fill up in support of a healthy source of drinking water. Some locals claim they see up 200+ people stopping for the water a day. No information is currently available on the details of the age or name of the spring but it is available to all. The water flows out of a long black hose that is sometimes left submerged in the runoff.

    Stopped here today after seeing others filling their water bottles. There was both a clear and black hose, we used the clear which I hope was okay. Tastes good!

    New sign here says this is purified spring water. The sign asks for donations because the equiptment, maintenance and electricity to purify the spring water costs lots of money. Strange that this is still claiming to be spring water when we don’t know what they are treated it with and who they are.

    I have been getting water there for about 4 years and noticed a strong mineral taste (not good, almost a bitter taste) last week and this week too. Never had a problem before. Not sure how safe it is to drink…and we have children that drink this.
    The donation box seemed kinda weird too – as it gives no information as to who takes the $$$ and what exactly is done with it…but since it was placed in the middle of the creek on a large cement block – it appears to be “official”. I’d like know the responsible party as they could have the water purity tested and posted.
    I have seen Crystal Springs trucks pulling up to the house next door to the hose in the creek and connect their hoses in the locked metal boxes. Somebody is making $$$

  4. John says:

    I am sure Crystal Springs water Company would like the publicity that they get there water from this same source and now someone is asking for donations to maintain the source. I have seen the Crystal Springs water tanker there. The IRS will want to make sure that the donations are being reported. So unless the donations sign is removed or a legitimate explanation is provided a phone call and letter to King 5 investigations, King County Sheriff, King County water resources, Crystal Spring water Company would be in order. The whole thing looks like a fraudulent and a scam. What cost are involved in spring water from the ground. If this post is removed as other have without explanation this will just confirm suspicions of the fraud and this will be reported as indicated.

    I have been supplying spring water to the public for free for several years from the Green River Gorge Spring. Recently, I was told by the health dept that all drinking water supplied to the public must be purified by an ultraviolet light (just like strong sunlight). This is just a bureaucratic regulation and does not mean that there is anything wrong with the water. After considerable expense, I installed an UV light on the two hoses that go out to the road where people collect the spring water. To cover my costs I installed a donation box so people could pays what they thought the water was worth to them. At the time, I thought that I was supplying a valuable service to people and that they would be pleased. Nothing could be farther from the truth. All I ever got were negative comments like the ones above. Some people put money in the box but most seemed fill the box with nasty comments about how I was running greedy scam and that they were going to turn me into the police and various government agencies. If no one really wants or appreciates this excellent spring water I will simply remove the hoses and they can dip water out of the stream for free. So much for trying to do people a favor.

      Has the water been analyzed for heavy metals and that there is no industry dumping around it?

    • Olga Vodin Finney says:

      I hope the spring is still available for the public to use. Because I am new to the area and would like to visit the site for some fresh water next weekend.
      Its a shame that while receiving this magical gift, people would want to “report”, “investigate”, “collect taxes”etc
      Maybe they should drink more pure water? Because their sewer inside needs to be flushed well.

    • Andrew says:

      If you really are the person responsible for the spring hoses thank you very much. Your service is much appreciated.

    • Matt says:

      Thank you Jim. The water is delicious

    • Mark says:

      Hey Jim, SO sorry some ingrates cannot not appreciate your efforts to provide a cool little place for ANYONE to get really good spring water. We have been drinking this water for years and we are more than happy to donate. To all you complainers…STHU before you ruin it for everyone…stay in SEATTLE!

  6. Tru Wright says:

    Jim, I’m so grateful for access to clean drinking water. I appreciate all your efforts to make this water available.

  7. Kirk says:

    I appreciate all that you have done for people of the community! I live in Kent and could simply go to the local Windco and get water for .30 a gallon but instead choose to make the drive to the gorge because I believe in the purity and mineral rich water that should be free to all. The water bottle companies are the real scammers not you Sir! People are not REQUIRED to pay anything thus.. free water. If you dont want to donate then dont. I will be sure to donate a lot more the next time I head there. May the Lord bless all who help make this possible!

  8. Todd says:


    Unfortunately, some people cannot appreciate your kindness and willingness to share natures gift of living water to the good folks in your community. Thanks for caring and God Bless.

  9. jeff says:

    Thank you Jim
    I have been enjoying the water from the spring for ten years. I was under the belief the spring and hoses were maintained by the city of Black Diamond. I did not leave any money and was curious about the box. Next time I will definitely pitch in. Keep up the good work.
    The water is fantastic.

  10. Lura says:

    I just found this site! Super happy to see there’s something not so far away from me. Just wondering if this was still a legitimate mineral spring water source and which hose should I get the water from? It sounds like there are two hoses? Just trying to clarify so that when I make the drive out there I don’t have to turn back without water. Hey Jim, thanks for being a good sport despite the paranoid negativity that permeates our communities 🙂 Thanks to you people have good mineral water to drink 🙂

  11. Josh says:

    UV light kills the water. Everything is required to be pasteurized, homogenized, oxidized, “purified” etc. for a reason; they want to kill our food and drink so we continue to get sick so “health”/pharmaceutical/etc. corporations keep making mass $$$. Wonder why cancer, etc. keeps skyrocketing with all these regulations “protecting” us? But we’re supposed to be afraid of boogeyman ecoli ooooo.
    Anyway, anyone find a good spot to fill up actual pure, untampered spring water here?

    • Christina says:

      165th st off of I-5 is an artisian well that was left by a land owner and is maintained by the city…tested and free to fill up containers. It hasn’t failed a test in over 60 years.

  12. Nazha says:

    My husband and I have been drinking this water for several years now, and we are SO grateful for it! We noticed the donation box and were thrilled someone finally thought of putting one up! We try to donate every time we get water, because such amazing water simply deserves donations!! Thank you so much for providing the public with this and for all your efforts! God bless you!

  13. Dan says:

    I filled 20 gallons from this spot a week and a half ago. My wife and I began drinking the water right away. I ordered a water test to be sure before giving the water to my 8 month old. After a week I tested the water. The results were comparable to the seattle city water, except the spring water did show trace amounts of bacteria. We had drank a lot of the water for a entire week with no repercussions, but thought I would let that be known. I think its a good idea to test any water that you are consistently drinking.

    • KAREEM J HADEE says:

      What type of container did you use? Did you Bleach/Clean the container before getting water at this location? Bacteria can grow in fresh, living water.

    • Mark says:

      We love the water and appreciate Jim making it available to us! We are more than happy to make a Donation to help offset the cost of upkeep. To the whiners and complainers…STHU! if you don’t like it PLEASE do us a
      Favor and stay away from here. And WHO cares if a profit is made! Give me a Break! Smh…I frankly am stunned at the invective some have espoused over asking for a Voluntary donation…SAD. THANKS AGAIN JIM????????

  15. Cheryl says:

    My parents have been getting there water for free at this spring since the 80s and now we have to for past 5 yrs when we bought the house. It tastes great! We do periodically put in a donation and now that I’ve seen this post for first time now I know why for the UV light system. Thank you Jim for doing this. Do you also do periodic water testing? If yes can you somehow post those somehow so people can see it’s safe and UV lighting helps and worth the donations? ???? Maybe would help with the negativity if people saw this and understood. Thanks again. It tastes so good!!

  16. Kathy Simmons says:

    We have been using this spring for years and more specifically for the past year. The water is wonderful, as cold as ice and very pure. We donate every month because we appreciate the use of the spring. Thank you for keeping it going!

  17. Mark says:

    Jim, thank you so much for making the water available to us. I cannot tell you how much it is appreciated and it is our pleasure to donate to help offset the cost of your outa pocket expense. As for the complainers…STHU and stay in Seattle before you ruin it for everyone. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and SO WHAT if someone makes a buck or two, smh…the negative comments here amazed me, so if that’s the way some of you feel please stay out of our neck of the woods.

    The green river gorge spring water is open 24 hours a day. The water is purified by an ultraviolet light an tested nearly every day. It has never had a bad report. A donation is required for whatever you feel the water is worth to you. The water pickup has recently been moved across the road where there is more parking and 7 water spouts. The Owner

    The water fill hoses for the Green River Gorge Spring have been moved across the road where there is more parking.
