As you can see, it is right off of the road so that you can drive up to it.  There isn’t a lot of room though and drivers can and do turn into assholes sometimes on a whim.

Pretty low TDS.  I think it was below 100 last time I tested it, also pretty cold I think 8.5c and 7ph.  This is some really good shit!  Ill be sure to go back and get exact measurements when I am not lazy (might be a while).

The guy in the pictures is the one who showed me the spring and is the owner of  I am also going to name the spring after him because I am not sure what its called and he is an amazing person.

    Visited it yesterday, there is a very tight space to park right by the water source. Can’t believe it’s so close to the city of Portland. Can this water quality as good as those in the deep mountain? Water tasted cold and great! Thank you so much for sharing.
    I took some photo to share, let me know how to upload them.

  2. It would be more considerate to keep the name the spring has always been known by “The Troutdale Spring”. Yes it’s in Corbett but that’s what it’s been called since…forever.

    BTW, PLEASE make sure you park off the road…there is barely enough room. Some folks are always happy to complain if you don’t…and it’s usually the rangers from the park across the road.

    We purchased two Complete Water Analysis test kits from and will be testing the water the week of 8-13-17. We will post results here and at

  3. The only restrooms nearby are the Camping Area across the street (only free in winter time) and the park back across the river on Stark St.

    Make sure you use them before you gather more than a gallon or so. At this particular spring, the large flow of water and the drop height from this pipe have an amazing effect on the human body 🙂

    Looks like I double posted the spring. Anyways, someone did a test on it in the other posting. Below is a link to the other posting and the test:

    I checked this out yesterday. This was my first time doing this, and I took 6 gallons. Then a friend told me that taking too much can harm the ecosystem. Does anyone know what the best amount to take is at one time, and how much of a concern this is?

    I was also thrown off by the man-made structure. It made me think this was connected to the sewer system at first. There was a concrete slab, a metal pipe sticking out, and a metal grate beneath it. How can you tell the difference between something that’s just part of the city water system and an actual spring?

    Thank you for any responses.

    Anyone know if this spring is safe to drink from post eagle creek fire, with everything that was sprayed in the area to keep the fire from spreading?

    My wife and I were blessed and happened to come across this amazing natural Water source. The healing effects of this high quality H20 can be felt almost immediately especially if all you’ve been drinking is distilled. Can’t wait to feel the effects after a couple of weeks . Thank you

    Stopped by today. Cool, clear and sooo refreshing. Road was extremely busy to use a lot of caution when parking. There is precious little space to park. There were (3) other regulars collecting water when I was there. One mentioned this water was the purest he’d ever tested. I drank about 1/2 gallon today and so far so good!
