Description

Cold, exceptional water. Mammoth flow. Well maintained.

“I created this name as I know of no other. This spring has served the townspeople well. The water supply was accidentally poisoned decades ago forcing the locals back to the Source. I’ll provide a link regarding the chemical spill.” – NewDawn

    This spring is not in working order! Water is no longer flowing from the tube but on the creek bed. Would like to help fix please give me contact info for anyone who is working with this spring. We love this water!

    Yes, I traveled to it yesterday and found it not flowing as well. With all the snow, it will be difficult to trace it uphill to its source. I too would be happy to help repair once the snow melts. Ron

    We went to this spring yesterday and it was flowing really strongly…. very tasty water… don’t have any stats yet in terms of TDS, pH, etc., but I hope to get that soon. 🙂

      Hey everybody,

      This spring really IS a true miracle…. I tested the TDS and pH and it came out really awesome… The TDS was right about 14ppm and the pH was around 7.3.  Really superb water!

    I went to the spring on 9/5/11, flow was strong water was refreshing  and cold. I was new to the area and made the mistake of thinking that the spring was located on 64 High Street where a blue PVC pipe is visible from the street (not like the one pictured above). The owner of the house happened outside at the time and directed me to the right location only about 150 feet on the left  going up hill. Interesting too is the noticeable destruction to the town from the tornado that pas through.My prayers and thoughts go the the people of the town and elsewhere that were touched but this tragedy.

    Just went here for the first time last week and filled up. It’s running strong, and very refreshing!!

  7. LB says:

    Stopped by on Sunday, 12/4/2011 and the spring was running strong and clean.  You can park on the side of the road where you see a small spot that holds maybe three cars.  It’s a short walk up the hill to the spring.

    I was there yesterday, 12/15, for the first time.   I followed the pipe about halfway up the hill to find it separated at one of the connectors but still flowing into the other peice of piping.   A large branch had fallen from the big pine tree half way up the hill and caused this.  I removed the branch and reconnected the pipe but didn’t have the tools to tighted the connectors and make a strong connection.  It improved the flow when I made it back down and was still connected when I left (checked it), but it should be properly repaired to avoid disconnecting again.   

    Other than that – excellent water and I will be testing for bacteria and metals this weekend and will post!   

  9. Timshel says:

    Kevin, thanks for the up date. I plan on going in the next couple of weeks. What tools would I need to secure the pipe connections if needed. Any results from testing for bacteria and metals? Keep us posted.
    Thanks,

  10. Kevin says:

    Hi Timshel – I think just a flathead screwdriver to tighten the connectors, but also a lot of strength and maybe 2 people to push the peice back together tightly.    

    I’m a little unsure on the bacteria test.  It showed a lot of bacteria but only seemed to be one type.  I am thinking it could be good bacteria…?   I may send into lab which will give more specific results.   You can view here.  http://www.prolabinc.com/instructions/bacteria.html

    There’s got to be 100 or more colonies on the petri dish, but all seem to be the same type.

    What is the update on this spring? Is it still clean?

  12. rawstrength says:

    I went to this spring today and it was flowing freely. The water was cold and tasted good.

  13. scott says:

    what did the lab results say?

  14. Greg Quimby says:

    I went there today (1-8-2013) and it was flowing smoothly, it was cold and tasted very good. I met a gentleman there who has been getting his water there for 10+ years, and was filling up four one-gallon milk jugs. Highly recommend this place!

  15. Gregg says:

    Has anyone checked it for traces of cadmium cyanide spilled in 1989? (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_Metal_Processing). Also, what kind of bacterial contamination was found here?

  16. kathy says:

    I stop at the spring monthly for the last year The water is great pure and tasty Flowing smoothly consistent in temp Love it!!!!!

  17. George says:

    Just returned from this spring …. good flow coming out of a plastic pipe … Google Maps/Nav spot on with location… water tastes great … TDS= 36; ph=7.1. Plan to make 2 gallons of kombucha with it! My SCOBYs have been struggling with the Berkey filtered tap water … curious to see how much they like this spring.

  18. John A says:

    The water flowhad reduced toa little more than a trickle backin December,2013. Upon returning it had stopped. I’m pleased that it isback running at a strong flow.1/31/2013

  20. Daniel says:

    Visited the spring today. It was flowing strong and cold. Only a few minutes to fill a 5 gallon carboy. TDS was around 30 and it tastes great. Just wanted to give an update.

  21. filproulx says:

    Used this spring as a child to rehydrate on long bicycle rides.
    Just as cold and delicious as it was 20+ years ago.
    This website is a great resource for those of us who want high quality H2O. Thanks for all the great info!

  22. Nicole Roy says:

    Hello, I’ve been getting my water here for the past year on a dedicated basis. I drive here from Enfield, CT every few weeks to fill up. I would like to know if this water has been tested or is being drank by others? I give this to my son and I. We have had no issues but would prefer some testing. Where do I start?? Thank you!

  23. Isabelle and Elisa says:

    Visited today
    Cold, very tasty and light
    Beautiful Spring in the shade
    Well maintained
    A local told us that it is tested once a week by the town of Monson and that this spring has always been there
    64 High street is a house for sale for the moment (if you are interested) ;the spring is in the wooded area right after the home

  24. Kim says:

    Just came across the “find a spring” website and would like to know if anyone has been to the True Blessing Spring in Monson, MA in 2016? Last post was in 2014. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!

  25. Dee says:

    Hi everyone, Have folks been drinking from this recently at all? Thank you!

  26. monica says:

    i started going there about 3 weeks ago, was a little worried about the safety quality at first but have been drinking it everyday and i will not buy bottled again…love it, delicious, and feel great

  27. thomas says:

    Hello,
    I am wondering if the water is still ok to drink from here?

  28. Tara says:

    Delicious water. Easy access. Flow is strong and clear.

  29. Lance Butler says:

    Went here today, in the dead of winter, the water was alive and flowing very well! Met a few locals collecting water; this spring is tried and true!

  30. Mary says:

    Is this spring on private property? Do the owners mind if people come and fill up their water jugs?
