  1. does anyone have any information on the water quality or latest lab results. Have sampled the spring but boil before using. any more info greatly appreciated.

  2. We found the spring. It is marked. Before we found it, we spoke with a local woman who indicated that the source of the water is not completely underground (even though it comes out of a pipe on the side of a hill/mountain). That the water should be boiled before drinking as it runs on the ground in some places (subject to beavers and the parasites they carry) and could make a person sick.

  3. Wonderful Spring found on scenic trail next to the Piscataqog river. Beautiful. easy to find and elite tasting agua. TDS was 8 when I was there with a slow flow. I spoke to a lady there who told me flow is usually much stronger and that her family has been getting water there since 1917. 93 till infinity’- I look forward to going back for refills.

  4. Hi

    I was visiting my daughter in New Boston and she directed me to River Road Springs because I wanted to find a natural spring and fill my 5 gallon bottle. Can anyone tell me if this water is safe to drink, because their is a sign there saying New Boston is not responsible for health. Can I get some feedback and was it tested is it the best or not? Thanks for any feedback

  5. I wonder if the woman who has been drinking this water since 1917 boils it before she drinks? Does anyone know of another spring in NH that would not be suggested to boil before drinking?

    1. Just had comprehensive test done at a lab and came out perfect. PH could be a little better only 5.8. No need to boil-just ruins the water. Ignore the signs, just there for legal purposes.

  6. I went to this spring today 6/17/2014. The spring looks great, and water flow was good. This water tastes amazing!
