Please rate this spring


Spring box is at the side of the road in the shade of a large tall beech tree. There is a flat graveled pull off area large enough for a single vehicle or truck. It’s a 50/50 chance someone will be there getting water when you arrive. It’s well known and used by the local people who don’t like drinking the city water.

“I just trust the large number of people using this spring indicates the water is good. It tastes delicious to me and I have had no bad effects.” – Dunnea Rae

    We just tested the water we got from here, and it tested positive for coloform bacteria, unfortunately. Too bad, we thought we had found a good spot for good water, just thought I would post for others to know.
