Please rate this spring

Continuous strong flow from a pipe setup on the east side of the road. Really tasty water!

No fees.
Always open.
Open to the public.
Continuous flow.


On the Columbia River Highway, the spring is between Dabney State Park and Nelson Road. Heading up the hill, the spring will be on your left, on the east side of the road.

Be careful parking, the road is on a hill, people drive fast, and my first visit to the spring cost me my driver side window because I wasn’t off the road completely.

    I have collected water from this spring and had the park system tell me that I shouldn’t drink it, that it was actually runoff? I am hesitant to believe that they knew what they were talking about, so if you consistently drink from this spring or have done a water test can you let me know?

    This is shown in N. Cali but it’s really in N. Or, near the border with WA

    Considering there has been long time chemical farming on the bluff above and many people that live up there (all on private septic systems) have contracted cancer of all types. I wouldn’t drink it. Grosses me out every time I drive by and see someone filling their water jugs.

      I’m wondering why the testing came back alright if there are chemicals and contaminates in this spring water.
      I live in Portland, will you recommend a different spring that you feel is good?
      Thank you

    • Gabriel says:

      Considering the test completed above, Portland tap water AND water bottled in plastic bottles both have higher toxicity and cancer causing contaminants than the water flowing from this spring. Perhaps the reason people in the are contacted cancer of all types is because that is how most humans end our lives – various types of cancer.

    Anyone know of any testing for this spring?

  5. Robert says:

    Been drinking water from this spring and I’d like to know who manages it. At some point I saw an “unofficial name” for it, like Erik’s well or Arnold’s spring.. anybody know?
