Petone’s pure, artesian water has always been a source of pride to residents and the wider community who have actively protected this natural treasure.

“The artesian water originates from the waters of the Hutt River which enter the secure artesian aquifer (layers of sand gravels and boulders confined by impermeable layers of silt and clay) at Taita Gorge in the north of the valley. The water is naturally filtered through the alluvial gravels and sands of the Hutt Valley over several years before reaching the Petone Foreshore where it leaks into the sea floor of Wellington Harbour extending as far south as the harbour mouth. Today, treated artesian water is supplied to residents of the region. However, pure untreated artesian water can now be enjoyed from taps at the new Petone icon, Te Puna Wai Ora (Spring of Life) in Buick Street Petone. The pure artesian water is free from micro-organisms and organic substances and is safe to drink in its natural form because it has been naturally filtered over several years in its journey within the aquifer. The pure artesian water is highly valued throughout the region and consumers travel long distances to collect the water for drinking purposes.”http://www.huttcity.govt.nz/publications-forms/Brochures/Petones-Artesian-Water/

    I went to one of David Wolfe’s talks and asked him about artesian water, he said artesian water is not the same as spring water. He said artesian water is basically well water.

      I just saw this post in the FAQ section of this website “How good is an artesian well vs. a spring? Is this a good alternative if I can’t find a spring in my area?”
