    Went down to this spring today November 6, 2010 and it is closed. Signs posted saying it’s closed, but we went to check it out anyway. No water running from the faucets and no explanation why. 🙁

      Did you know you can call the Wompatuk phone number and it will tell you on the recording if the spring is open? It is pretty accurate. I always call before I go, even though I just live a couple miles away. I called every day when it was closed due to the electrical problem. 🙂

    So whats the deal, is the spring still closed and any reason given?

    • Gina says:

      Hi Dwizzy200. The spring is now open again (it’s been a few weeks), after being closed for approximately 2-3 months due to an electrical problem.

    My first Mt. Blue visit: Feb-11-2012

    After listening to David
    Wolfe’s and Daniel Vitalis’ lectures on spring water over the years, I
    decided that it was finally time to graduate from Berkey-filtered city
    water to harvested raw water.

    Three faucets are located on a wall
    as you descend a few steps inside the enclosed shack. The height
    between the spigot and floor is PERFECT for filling 5 gallon
    carboys—they can remain on the ground while tilted a few degrees,
    allowing for the spigot to drop about an inch inside the neck; totally
    conducive to full-blast quick fills.

    Also, I recommend using the
    right-hand faucet for staging heavy containers.  When you’re done
    filling, just lift your jug straight up and onto the adjacent chest-high
    floor.

    My in-laws live above an aquifer in VT, and I’ll rank Mt. Blue’s water as good if not better.

    Only a 35 minute drive from J.P., I’m going to make Wompatuck a bi-weekly tradition.

    Thank you, Earth.

    Wow, this is pretty awesome. I had no idea anything like this existed, let alone so close to home. Sure beats BPA, fluoride, lead and chlorine! I think I’ll be taking a trip here soon!

    I watched a Vitalis video and the next day I bought 3 6.5 Gal carboys and corks from Brewer’s Emporium in Weymouth. I knew about Mt. Blue from when I was a teenager and findaspring refreshed my memory. This was my first time harvesting spring water and I have to say it’s a lot of fun. Water tastes divine. Not sure if the UV lamp filtration is such a good thing as it probably kills the beneficial microbes. I don’t see how it would alter the water other than that. Maybe someone with better knowledge on the subject can break down the affects of the UV lamp filtration.

    Went there yesterday (July 5, 2015.) Unfortunately it was “closed for repairs.” 🙁

    Filled up two days ago. I have two 5 gallon carboys. Sure beats paying for poland spring when its free here.
