    I drove out today, There is a river that runs through town, that’s it. I asked a few shop owners if they knew of a place where people fill their own containers with fresh wild water and they of course had not heard nor seen anything like that.

      So Nicole, how was it? Were you able to fill up? I just moved to Temple which is like 5-10 minutes from Salado, easy trip to go fill up! Just have to buy the jugs.

    There is not one ‘Salado Spring’ in Bell County, there are hundreds. The Salado Creek is a spring fed natural stream and the springs along is are primarily on private property. The local water supply relies heavily on several privately owned springs. There are two spring fed lakes nearby. Homes not within the coverage area of the Salado Water Supply Corp are supplied by well water, tapping directly into the underground river that is the beneath Bell County. aka the Edwards and Trinity Aquifers. Largely rural, springs around Salado can be affected by agricultural and animal production. In town landscaping, a leaking gasoline storage tank and highway runoff have played a major role in pollution of the creek. A local bottling company once sourced from the spring located at Camp Tahuaya in Salado. They have now transitioned the Spicewood Springs brand from lemonade and water to flavored sodas.

    30.9438503, -97.5369688 are the GPS coordinates. From Main St., turn left onto Royal St., then take the first left into the alley/driveway immediately past Rosansky’s. The spring is underwater. I filled up 7 gallons today, but I’m just passing through the town so I won’t be drinking this regularly; if I were, I’d probably get it tested (though it tastes good and is crystal clear!).
