    Is there a place to fill water bottles

  2. Janet Weisberg says:

    Where do you fill bottles?  I live in SW FL so I’ll have a long drive to get there.  Janet

    i’m in south florida for the winter looking for low tds spring water.  i’ve looked at every blue pin on the map (which means drinking springs).  Gemini Springs apparently has a bacterial problem and now Interlachen is dry!  i called the Interlachen post office and a kind woman named Jeffery drove by on her way to home to make sure.  It’s dry!  so now, the only drinking water in Florida seems to be in the Fountain of Youth Park.  I heard they let u in with bottles, but will they let me in with my car and 4 large 3 gallon bottles?  

    i notice there are a lot of towns in Florida with “springs” in the name – that implies springs in the area at one time.  so i’m now on the search for all these towns and will report back – am open to hearing about any other springs found in Florida – please email me at sofreeroots@hotmail:twitter .com.  many thanks!  

    VIVA WILD WATER!

    Unfortunately, the spout for this spring is damages and
    virtually impossible to collect. I was disappointed to find
    it in an unusable state of condition.

      Just harvested water at this spring. Seems to be working just fine, pouring out. Water taste is not the best, but not bad at all. A slight sulfur smell when you bottle it, but no smell at the spring itself.

  5. Bogdan says:

    This spring is still working! Water has no distinct or bad taste, but just a slight smell of sulfur. Refreshing and cold at the source.

  6. Gregory says:

    Currently the pipe work for the spring is up and running. It has been reinforced with concrete etc:. It is constantly been flowing the past 3 months. The water is crystal clear with a slight sulfur smell when in a container. That smell goes away if you let the water sit for about three days. Best water I’ve ever had.

    • Veronica Frugoni says:

      I went to the spring yesterday the water is flowing and is clear but there is a bad smell around it and trash in front of the bridge on the sides and at the button of where the cement reinforcement is built. I’m not sure where the water comes from but if it is from the small river on the side where everybody throu trash I wouldn’t drink the water. Has anybody tested the water recently?

  7. Sam says:

    Is there anyone to contact to make sure that this water is safe to consume? I want to make sure that theres no harmful contamination such as heavy metals or radioactive waste from that sink hole a few years ago.

    Thanks

    Just got water here today. Fantastic taste and smell. The water is very healing in this county! Haven’t been to this spring since around the year 2000. Was getting water at Ravine Gardens State Park till the hurricane in 2017 blew out the loop and many of the huge trees. Then started going 3 minutes north of this location.
