    A lot of people drink from this artesian well.I had it tested at a private clinic.The water is compromised from the current Expera Paper mill.Sorry to this happen.I cannot drink this water any longer.

    • Susan Louise says:

      I was wondering about that.

      Knowing the Paper Mill is considered to be very toxic and if it would interfere with the quality and safety of the water…

      Was wondering where you are going for safe water?

    • Kelly says:

      I i’m currently getting all of our drinking water from the spring. Please share what kind of compromise the water has had. I am a mother of three and cannot afford to have the water tested at a private clinic.

      I used to get my water from this well when I lived in the area. I was going to take my daughter here when we are up this summer and was wondering what you ment by compromised. And if its even worth the trip

    Do you know what found in water? Do you know of another clean spring nearby?

  3. ERICA says:

    Comprimised with what? What were the results of your testing? Extremely interested to know… I wonder the pros and cons vs treated city tap water?

  4. Dawn says:

    Thank you for that info I was wondering with the paper there and how much they dump if the water would still be good enough to drink. Heard of this site on Dr. Mercola’s water interview video. I am in Eagle River wondering if there is yet another well that we don’t know about. I will ask around and try to find out. I will ask the very older locals they know a lot in this area. Sad to hear that water is compromised. 🙁

  5. The water has been tested by the city. It’s safe to drink. The mill is too far away from the spring to actually contaminate it

    Last comment written in regard to the S. River Rd (Rhinelander) roadside spring was January 2016 where 2-3 people mentioned possibilities that the water was ‘compromised’ from the nearby paper mill. Any further word on this or recent testing done?
    Several years ago (prior to 2015) I drew water from there and twice test reports were posted that looked fine.

    When was the water tested last? Where can one go to have a sample tested?
