    We’re from Green Bay also, but use to live in Milwaukee over eleven years ago. There was a spring on the South Side that had a spring too, running freely. Now as I understand it was closed to the public. Why I do not know. But here is a place for us to go and get good water now.

  5. Marijjay says:

    We went out there yesterday and couldn’t find it. I have been searching maps. Is it possible it is covered by snow? Can anyone tell me if the directions are exact? Help!

      i TAKE HWY 41 tURN OFF ON 441 IN MENASHA IT GOES WEST ON HWY 10,  tAKE THAT ALL THE WAY TO HWY 45 NORTH TURNING RIGHT AND GO TOWARD nEW lONDON, NOT FAR FROM TURNING TOWARD nEW LONDON YOU WILL RUN INTO CNTY. RD. W. TURN LEFT ONTO W AND GO THROUGH REDFIELD WHICH IS A LITTLE WAYS.  tHEN TAKE A LEFT ON HH,  IT WILL CURVE LEFT NOT FAR AND IT’S ABOUT 20 FEET OFF THE ROAD UNDER A BIG OAK TREE WITH A WOODEN BENCH BY IT.  I WAS JUST THERE DEC 10, 2011.  THE ADDRESS IS WRONG ON THE WEBSITE THOUGH IT’S  1588 NOT 5188 PINE RD.

      My email is fkathysdream@new,rr,com if you have questions

  6. KATHY says:

    My comment is the water is very good and easy accessable for handicapped people.  One thing is the nearest address is wrong It’s 1588 Pine rd. not 5188 pine rd. like you have on this website.  This driveway is 40 ft. from the spring.

  7. Guest says:

    This address is incorrect.  It is PINE*S* with an “S” road.  PINES road. There is a Pine street in New London which will send a mapquester on the other side of New London, almost a half hour away from the spring. 

  8. Sileindigo says:

    The actual address next to the spring says:
    N1588 
    Cty. Hwy HH 
    Town of Caledonia

  9. Mel says:

    Hello All,
    I am very familiar with this property. The correct address is: N1588 County Hwy HH New London, WI 54961. You might also find it under N1588 County “Road” HH New London, WI and the property has also come up under Fremont, WI instead of New London, WI.
    The well is located approx. 25 miles west of Appleton in Waupaca County, in the Township of Caledonia, NW of Readfield on the East side of Hwy HH, between Gruetzmacher Rd and Pines Rd. The water pipe protrudes from a limestone cairn that is beneath a large, weeping willow tree. Enjoy the water, compliments of Mother Nature! Please keep the area clean and control children and pets!
    Note: It would be safer overall to “back” into the driveway, rather than park on the highway!  

  10. Jon says:

    Just drove out there today Stevens Point! Took a little bit to find it since the spring isn’t on pines road but on HH. Super cold and tastes great!

  11. Scott says:

    Took a drive to get some about 3 days ago. The water is cold and definitely carries a taste of cleanness. This will now be my number 1 spot for getting quality water from now on! Thanks to the person/people that got this spring water going!

  12. Josh says:

    I wanted to get the water tested since its sitting in the middle of a lot of farmland. Slightly worried about fertilizer, specifically nitrates leaking in and possibly other contaminates. But its fairly costly. Still looking around for the best company to test as well so let me know if you’d like to pool in and get it tested! Then we can post the results here.

      Hello Josh,
      I would be interested in helping to get this water tested. Please email me back if you are still interested. Thank You 🙂

      Blessings,
      Kimberlky

    I just drove out there yesterday. I don’t think the water is good anymore. It smelled/tasted like sulfur.

    • MARK says:

      Today I was at the other New London spring located at County W & Manske Rd at the bridge. The water from this spring tastes great & it is much more beneficial to my body than the bottled water that I have been buying over the decades. I have been drinking this fresh spring water for only 6 hours & I already feel better with less irritability & have a more peaceful feeling with increased stamina & positive energy. Intense irritability & strong negative energy were a couple of my health problems but I was blaming it on old age. The natural magnesium in this spring water has calmed me down greatly. If I could afford to have an expensive thorough lab test done on this water I would do it. I did do a TDS meter test on it which read 158. There was a sign above the spring source that said the Arsenic levels were within acceptable government standards.

  14. kathy nettekoven says:

    Hello,
    Just curious if anyone has recently gotten water here, if it’s been tested?
    I would also be willing to help pay for testing if that is still an option.

  15. Melyssa says:

    Has anyone gone out here recently? Planning on taking a trip but if the water isn’t good anymore, don’t want to waste a few hours driving here.

  16. Edward says:

    I finally found this spring today not an easy task. I have no idea what the correct address is but OnStar kind of got me there using n1588 pines rd. and zip code 54940 which is Fremont but the property is Caledonia. So when I got home I found it on Google maps. The GPS Coordinates are:

    44°17’47.6″N 88°47’58.8″W

    44.296560, -88.799665

    these will get you right there. Hope this helps someone.

  17. Jimmy says:

    Anyone find out about this spring yet? I’m interested in finding out if its good or not. The fertilizer worries me a bit as does the sulfur smell someone posted.

    • Pheng says:

      Going out there today. Will let you know later… im bringing my API water test kit. it’s for aquariums but it will give me levels of ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, ph, alkalinity, chlorine, hardness

    • MARK says:

      Today (7/18/17) I was at the public spring located on County W at a bridge very close to the intersection of Manske Rd. This is not the spring at N1588 CTY Rd HH/PINES Rd. which is in the video. If you search ‘Manske Rd + CTY W New London, WI’ you can find directions to exactly where it is located. The water tastes great (IMO). The flow is wide & strong so it did not take me long to fill 36 gallon jugs. I had planned to go to the spring at N1588 CTY Rd HH but a New London resident only knew where the CTY W spring was so I went there instead. It is located at a very peaceful place out in the country with butterflies drinking from the spilled water & it was not crowded. There were no waiting lines but there was an infrequent slow pace of people getting water.

  18. MARK says:

    ATTENTION: There are 2 public springs in New London, WI. One spring is located at N1588 PINES Rd / Cty Hwy/Rd HH (read Mel’s info below) & the other is located at a bridge by the intersection of Manske Rd & Cty Hwy/Rd W. I was at the ‘W’ spring on 7/18/17 & the water tastes great with a TDS of 158. The GPM flow is fast so I filled 36 gal jugs very quickly. I will go to the ‘N1588’ spring next time to compare them.

  19. Alyse says:

    Just went out there and found it easily. Grabbed a cup full and tested it with my strips I use to test my water at home. Other than it being hard, everything was normal. It’s clear and no odor.

  20. Matthew says:

    Does anyone know the current status on this spring? Is it potable? The previous comments questioned that a bit, so just wondering if anyone got around to testing it lately?

  21. Sue M. says:

    Has anyone tested this spring water? With the nearby farms it’s a concern for safety. I’d like to find out before I make the trip. Thank you!

  22. Laura says:

    What’s up with this spring? I went today and it was all taped off. Did the water go bad or are property owners not wanting anyone there now?

  23. Laura says:

    Anyone know what’s going on? This spring was taped off with no signs.

  24. Brandy says:

    Just visited this spring 9/11/2018 unfortunately the water tastes like metal and has a sulfur smell when you put it in containers 🙁 wouldn’t recommended drinking from this spring at this time.
