  1. I would like to know how this site works. I submitted a spring but it does not appear on the site. What's the deal?

  2. There is a small source of water in Aylmer on Chemin de la Montagne very close to where it intersects with Vanier. It's south east from the intersection for maybe a 30 second drive and then you will see a path to your left coming from the intersection. Walk down the path for a minute or two and there it is. The water has a slight taste of sulphur but tastes great. It's a low current spring and we need to build a little something if we want to fill bottles up but it would be worth it for this living water.

  3. I went to the spring today and somebody has broke the pipe funneling out the water. There was a contractor onsite who was unable to tell me if it would be days or weeks until it is fixed, but for now there is no water available at the spring.  I sure hope it wasn’t vandalism.  He said they may have to get a backhoe and dig it out.  Might have to take a trip to Sainte-Agathe  🙂

  4. I have been going here for about two months now and really enjoy the water.  Two weeks ago there was a man there who worked for Environment Canada and he was volunteering for SOS wakefield.  They have been collecting baseline data to ensure the highway project has no effect on the spring.  I forget what he said the TDS was (I believe it was around 220), the PH was 7.43 and the temperature was 9 degrees.  I plan to have it tested soon enough.

  5. Just did the boil test on this water and it has a lot of gray/white residue—much worse than city of Ottawa water right out of the tap!

  6. We stop to fill-up our bottles whenever nearby for over 2 years already. We love to drink this water and are grateful to everyone that makes it available to public.
    Last time, at the end of February we did send the sample to be tested by Public Health Ontario Lab. It came clean (no bacterial contamination).
    We never had a problem and appreciate that the spring is always accessible. Thank you!

      1. Wonder if anybody has knowledge of a few water springs got for drinking, around Ottawa. Please e-mail location if you know any, at . Thank you in advance !

  7. I went to the spring last weekend, and it has been closed down. It didn’t indicate if this is temporary or permanent, but they did remove the piping.

  8. Has anyone been here within the past few months? I live quite a distance but would make the trip if it’s still operational and pure!

  9. This spring was closed around 23 Jan 2016 due to testing results. After further testing it was re-opened 4 Feb 2016. I’m heading up there shortly to get my supply. Will keep you posted re: the trip up.

  10. From HWY 5, turn onto Rockhurst, left on Riverside, and left at the stop side on Chemin Valley. The spring is covered and located on the left. There is parking for several cars. There are two spouts.

  11. Just did the boil test on this water and it has a lot of gray/white residue—much worse than city of Ottawa water right out of the tap!
