    This should not be listed as a Spring. It is water from a little spring fed creek that has been treated in a little pumping station. I went there last year and the water had so much chlorine in it it tasted like swimming pool water. It is a nice place to visit for a nature walk but forget the water.

    NOT A SPRING, It’s a tourist trap for the Religulous
