Please rate this spring

This spring is located along U.S. 40 west, about halfway down from the summit, before reaching Hopwood. There is a large area to pull cars off the highway, and there is a long rubber hose spewing out gallons of cold, fresh mountain water. The hose is propped up by a cinderblock and empties into a wooden trough which then empties and continues flowing down the mountain alongside the road. A favorite stop of mine anytime i’m in the area.

    Went to visit this spring, as we live in Morgantown and currently pay for spring water from Sweet Springs, WV. I took some of the Hopwood roadside spring water home and had it tested for a few things, including lead, pesticides, PH, Alkalinity, Copper, etc. as well as Coliform Bacteria. (the bacteria i will update when i have results) but everything came back clean, except for alkalinity and PH. This water showed up very acidic (Water should be the opposite, alkaline, for optimal health). I also tested the sweet springs, Wv water and it is perfect in every way. kind of a bummer! i was hoping to get some free, healthy spring water! But it’s still suitable for drinking, just not long term if you want to fight disease better 🙁

    I travel from Cumberland, Md to Pittsburgh, Pa a lot 12 months of the year.
    I always stop at this spring.
    Water is always flowing at a high rate and is always wonderfully refreshing.
    Site appears to be well maintained and is always clean.
