Description

This spring was family-owned and then given to the town of Buckfield on the premise that everyone would be able to have access to it. It’s kept up nicely and is in good shape. A small parking area is available right in front of the spring and some flat stones have been set up so that you can access the spring easier. The spring itself has been redirected using PVC pipes. (I know some people may not be into that, so I’m mentioning it.) The water is wonderfully cold and sweet! Great quality!

This Spring is between the two most powerful and gem rich mines in the world. The Mt. Mica mine has produced abundant gem tourmaline of every color. The Bennet Quarry on the other side of the spring produced a 52 Lb Morganite Crystal(Pink Emerald). The water that comes through is spring probably has a high lithium content and is programmed by some of the most profound gemstones on earth. If you set an intention, the water will respond to it.

This is super pure energized water. It flows thru the Mountains of crystal mines(think about this), It’s amazing! If you stored it in copper it would be called a battery. At sunset the place looks magic. Here is the Mineral list for the area :
Albite Evansite Manganocolumbite Rhodochrosite
Almandine Fluorapatite McCrillisite Romanechite
Amblygonite – Meta-autunite Roscherite
Arsenopyrite Goethite Metatorbernite Rutile
Autunite Goyazite Microcline Schorl
Beraunite Graphite Microlite Scorodite
Bertrandite Halloysite Mitridatite Siderite
Beryl Heterosite Montmorillonite Sphalerite
Biotite Hisingerite Moraesite Spodumene
Brazilianite Hureaulite Muscovite Stewartite
Brookite Hydroxylapatite Natromontebrasite (discredited) Strunzite
Calcite Jahnsite-(CaMnMn) Opal- Hyalite Tantalite

Cleavelandite Laueite Phosphuranylite Triphylite
Cookeite Lepidolite Pollucite Uraninite
Crandallite Lithiophilite Purpurite Zircon
Elbaite Löellingite Pyrite
Eosphorite Manganite Quartz. These rocks would scare distilled water back into steam.

    The water flow is so fast that the PVC tubing makes little to no difference. Plastic mainly leaches when warm water sits for extended periods of time in it (like commercial bottled water). The spring is ice cold and fast running!

    Same spring as Mt Mica also listed. Cooper is the official name on the sign. Super High Energized water with tons of minerals. See the complete list on other review. Universal Solvent flowing thru precious gems. Nearly 4 hours each way and I will keep coming back to this powerful source with a big smile on my face:)

    I tested the spring today (1/23/2010). The TDS level was a mere 10ppm. This is by far the best tasting and highest energy spring water I have come across in Maine.

    …so you used my Paris Hill Spring comment as the Cooper Springs description. I'm honored and its all true. You can't stop the copper top. This place is MAGIC! Be there for sunset and you will never forget it.

    I visited this spring on the Fourth of july. Beautiful setting and wonderfully cold water. Met the Church Youth Director while I was there 🙂

    best water in maine ! Please keep it secret !

  8. Meg says:

    Drove 2 1/2 hours to this spring and it was definitely worth it!  The taste is sweet and
    clear and it tested at a TDS of 11 on my meter.  Sunday is a very busy day at the spring: got there at 11:30 am, there were 4 cars ahead of me and it was 30 minutes before I could get my water, and when I left there were 4 cars behind me.  The view from the spring is pretty spectacular.

    I wonder if this would be good to brew beer with ?

    Anyone have an exact address or coordinates for this spring? Can’t seem to find it on Google maps.

  11. Cooper Spring is owned and operated by Oxford County Soil & Water Conservation District. The water is tested on a monthly basis and in the past year improvements to the spring have been made. This work has been paid for with the monies received from the donation box at the spring. For a good history of the Cooper Spring you can read the recent book published by Beverly Shaw of West Paris. Please feel free to contact us with comments or questions.

    This is my go to spring. I fill two 5!fallin hugs every other week. Once you get hooked on this stuff, nothing else compares.

  14. Zach says:

    Just visited this spring. Moved nearby and decided to try this spring out. You will NOT be disappointed. If you put the GPS coordinates into your gps and go, it will bring you directly to it. Clear, fast flowing, and ice cold. I asked a local how this water was and he said “it is one of the best in the state”. True gem, and plan to harvest all of my water from here. Filled up a 5 gallon jug in less than 30 seconds. I hope you can try it!
