Free Spring Water For All

I don’t wish to get into a debate over household drinking water or the effects of fluoride, chlorine and heavy metals present in our tap streams. But if you are like me and prefer the pure taste and benefits of natural spring water, I have good news for you!

A few years back I discovered an amazing website called findaspring.com, a wonderful community project where people mapped out most of the natural springs in North America, categorized on a map. So anyone can easily locate the nearest source in their area. Most of them are in Provincial Parks and State Forests but occasionally they can be found on the side of a rustic road. Best of all, they are absolutely free to use. Needless to say, it has changed my life.

I live in Montreal, Quebec and found at least 7 locations within 1 hour driving distance. I visited the Lost River Spring multiple times and not only did I stock up on gallons of some of the best tasting water I have ever tried, I also adored the whole road trip experience! It’s such a fun and rewarding activity.

Here are a few pics of my beautiful journey to Lost River Spring

On findaspring.com, each spring listing is well described. In many cases it offers the water PH & quality details, as well as directions and coordinates. Users can also comment and upload videos of their experience. You can even submit a new listing if ever you end up stumbling upon a new spring.

I leave you with a video of Daniel Vitalis, the man behind the movement. Enjoy!

  2. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Nice. We are out in the country (outside Fredericton, NB) and have water from a deep well: also very nice. I always sniff the city restaurant water when they bring me a glass!

    • Haha that’s a good trick! But good for you. I wish I had a well!! I live in Montreal so we get ours from the Saint-Laurent River. Definitely lacks in purity :p Haven’t had a sip of tap water in more than 15 years. I’m going to a lake house today for a week, so I will get some good nature therapy and drink plenty of good water from the cottage’s well 😀
