Description

I had this water tested by a local water filter outlet. In addition to the information below, I was told the alkilinity level is 170…city average is 70. And hardness, based on calcium and manganese is 11…a nearby waterfall was 6…I suspect city is much lower, but I forgot to ask.

Nearest Address

just a smidge before mile 109 on the Turnagain Arm, there is a pull out on the Hwy and a spout jutting from the mountain rock face

On North side of highway directly across from a pullout and within a few hundred yards of the Mile 109 highway marker, Anchorage side. This is just South of Beluga Point and McHugh Creek on the Seward Highway on the South end of Anchorage, Alaska.

Directions from Nearest Address

Head down Seward Hwy, pass Potters Marsh…pass McHugh Creek…start looking for sign posts shortly after McHugh Creek…when you see mile 110, keep your owes out for the pull off on the right and the spring tube on the left…and often a line of people gathering water
