Please rate this spring

Within the Bicentennial Park in Provo, Utah. There is a nature walk that brings you to this spring. It runs all year. I took a picture of the description by it too (see second image). I love the idea of drinking spring water, but still want it to be safe. I have a TDS meter and it said 243 (which I think is too high?)

The area that now comprises the park was once the Nuttall family estate. The spring, named for the family, was used to supply drinking water as well as water for the garden, prized gladiolus, the orchard, pasture and animals. Any excess water flowed into the brook that is still present today. Now the spring provides surface water through part of the constructed wetland.

    According to the BIS, the ideal TDS for drinking water is below 300mg/L and the max permissible limit is 600mg/L. Under 300 = excellent:

    Visited the spring today. Its about a 3 minute walk from the Bicentennial Park parking lot. The spring water flows out of a pipe. It was really easy to fill up my glass carboys with the water and then haul them back to my car.

    Unfortunately I actually wouldn’t recommend drinking from this spring. I noticed that the spring water collects in a small cement basin, the excess water in the basin then flows out of a connected pipe. However, I noticed small fish and insects swimming around in the water that is in the basin 🙁

    This is the first time i am trying to find a spring so i am just learning. Cindee says TDS should be under 300mg/l. But the description says this springs has a TDS of 243 which it says is to high. Can you explain what that means

    So is this safe to drink? I’m trying to get some fresh spring water this seems like a good option for me.
