    Wrong location. Follow to River Rd, go left.
    About a quarter mile down on left.
    Sometimes no flag.
    Second dirt pullover with overhanging birches.

    From what i have been told, you go to River Rd and make a right not a left. I couldn’t find it when I went so likely this is why. Will update when I find it.

    Had some difficulty locating this spring but was able to find it after pulling over and asking an old timer for directions. After crossing over the bridge, go left on river road. The spring is about a quarter mile down the road on the right side (mountain side). Inconspicuous black hose sticking out of the ground. Did not see a flag.

    Go to the end of Winooski Street and take a Left on River Road. Black pipe sticking out of the ground on the right side of the road. If you reach Heart Street you have gone too far

    I found this spring and took a photo, Ill upload as soon as I find out how…

    After crossing the bridge from Waterbury town, take a left onto River Rd. The spring is 0.2 miles down the road on the right. Just a small space to pull over. If you look back and can no longer see the bridge, you have gone too far. The spring is coming out of a black hose and is inconspicuous. Excellent water with a TDS of 14 ppm.

      Just filled up! What a perfect source for the best water ever. Thanks for letting us know the TDS as my meter comes in the mail in two days. I just wanted to post that if you are trying to find this spring, use the Wayz GPS app and type in Waterbury spring and it will guide you direct to the spring. And I’m going to start a Facebook group for this specific spring so please email me if interested in learning more and we can keep up current news about the spring both here and there. My email is Leif.e.johnsen@gmail.com 🙂

      To help you find it, look for the 3 posts and a chain on the left side of the road. The hose with spring water constantly coming out is on the other side of the street from the posts and chain. The gracious elder/owner of the farm on which the spring is located placed the posts and chain there to keep water-bearers from parking in his field. His name is Jim Harvey, and he lives in the first house on the right after you drive back past the bridge entrance.

      today the spring is posted and the black pipe is gone .

    • Michael Davis says:

      Someone has went in, put a sign up that says private property, and have covered up the spring. So the spring is no longer available.

    Appears to no longer be in service. Got water there on 10/3/18 and a few days later the hose was gone and logs are covering the spot where hose emerged from the ground. Anyone know why? This was great water and a great resource.

  9. David says:

    Spring CLOSED – 10/11/18

    The hose is gone, and the space where it was filled in with large chunks of rock and a private property sign. 🙁

    Do not go to this spring. It is closed down now. Gravel rocks are covering where the spring used to be and a private property sign hung. So sad, this water was so good!

  11. This spring is now closed! Much thanks to the Harvey family for having generously provided the water to the local community for so long!

    According to the landowner, James “Jim” Harvey, the spring is the primary source of water for his son whose house is about 1,000 feet up the hill. Someone opened up the cistern and depleted the water, leaving none for his son. It cost the son about $2,000 to restore the pump and service to his house, so to avoid future problems of this type, they filled in the spring with gravel and closed it off to the public, placing “Private Property – Keep Out” signs at the former spring site.

    Anyone who discovers another publicly available spring water source in the Waterbury or Bolton area, please post it here! Thank you, and again, much thanks to the Harvey family!

    Anyone know what happened to this spring. Showed up this weekend and somoene covered the outlet with gravel and posted a private property sign.

  13. Flint says:

    Unfortunately, this spring has been covered in gravel and a Private Property No Trespassing sign has been posted in it’s place. You will no longer find a spring here.

  14. Kashmir says:

    Waterbury spring is gone – they plugged it up and shut it down October 2018

  15. Callie says:

    Someone put up a private property sign and ripped out the hose 🙁

  16. Anonymous says:

    THIS SPRING IS NOW CLOSED. Private Property sign where the spring was. Cistern is chained and locked. Sad that the owner did this. Was excellent and appreciated water source.

    This spring is closed down – they dumped gravel on it and put up a no trespassing sign

  19. Kimberly says:

    As of November 4, 2018, the spring has been made unusable. 🙁 It looks like the landowner has pulled out the pipe, put some gravel on the spot, and put up a “Private Property No Trespassing” sign. I’m hoping there is some way the town can get access back to the spring and I intend to inquire.

  20. Flint says:

    Sadly, this spring is no longer in service. The spring is now covered in a pile of gravel, and has a private property keep out sign.

  21. eric duckworth says:

    this spring no longer exist.land owner buried spring with rock and put up posted/no trespass signs.this happened around the middle of 10/2018.too bad it was greater water.too many people were using to spring leaving garbage around and some dumb ass kept building cairns out of rocks

  22. Spring in Waterbury had the pipe pulled out, a load of gravel put on it and a private property, no trespassing signs was placed on the tree near it. This was early November of 2018!

  23. eric duckworth says:

    Sadly this spring has been removed. It was overflow from someone’s private water supply and vandals cost them $$$ so they had to post their land.
