    Not only is this spring highly sulfurous and probably dangerous to drink from but there is a not trespassing sing next to it. Don’t waste your time.

      Hi Disagree with your analysis of the water quality. It is high in minerals, iron,maginese and other natural occuring minerals. If you are use to chlorinated public water sources then you will no doubt find this odor and taste unusual, but it is not hydrogen sulfide you are smelling or tasting. That area of Lenawee County has very little limestone deposits which create “sulfur water”. Monroe County does indeed have sulfur water due to it limestone deposits. The “no tresspassing” sign pertains to after hours loiterers at the adjacent BP/”The Springs” convienence store. The spring is on State right away land and was once maintained by the State of Michigan as a road side park.

    This spring is no longer running.  The health department poured concert to stop the flow.  

    Here is the story in the local paper:

    why is michigan in the maine section?

  4. I just drove over 275 miles looking for spring water in Michigan’s south central area.  This spring like the others on for this part of the state have been closed down by the health dept.  The locals say they couldn’t prove there was anything was actually wrong with the water, but the state decided to close down all of Michigan’s natural springs.  What a shame, but I’m willing to join others around the state, who don’t want to just stand by and do nothing.  Water is life!

    Its capped and not flowing. Was there a few months ago and it looks like it hasn’t flowed in a long time, in fact someone put Christmas lights on it.

    My parents owned the Springs gas station next door in the 70’s and as kids we all drank from the springs. What a shame its capped:(
