Our Source

Springtime Artesian Water is pure artesian water from Appling, Georgia, and is bottled at its source. Our source is the Crystalline Rock Aquifer, which lies nearly 1,000 feet underground through solid granite, protected from air and other pollutants for centuries by layers of rock and sand. When tapped into, the aquifer is pressurized enough to allow the water to rise naturally towards the surface, then bottled at the source. The high quality of our water is controlled by analytical tests which verify the water is not contaminated in any way. Analytical tests are performed frequently at the source to verify the constancy of the mineral composition. We purify the water with additional processes which include sand, charcoal and pharmaceutical grade micro filtration. The last step in our process is ozonation. This process sterilizes the bottle and cap to ensure the purity of our product.
