    I found a chemical analysis of this spring in 1886 in this pdf. It is known as the White Sulphur spring.

    Units are parts per million
    sodium carbonate 20.91
    calcium carbonate 80.50
    magnesium sulphate 25.53
    sodium chloride 11.23
    potassium chloride 11.32
    phosphoric acid- trace
    organic matter 21.32
    silica soluble 14.40
    sulphurated hydrogen- present
    iron oxide 1.40

    I am looking for more springs and trying to link them up to this pdf or putting them here on findaspring. please put modern chemical readings on here if you find them. I am also trying to find a cheap method for lithium quantification, since modern analysis do not commonly detect for this. Please add to the discussion here on reddit.

    Dont bother wasting your time going to this spring. He has started bottling and it is no longer open to public. I found this sign here. You can only drink it out of plastic now. https://allquawater.com/?v=7516fd43adaa

    So I went there again and it is open to the public on Saturdays from 8am to 4pm. Don’t come late or they close the gates. They do bottle it though. But as long as they keep it open to the public I’m cool with that. It is a dollar per gallon or free if you really can’t afford it. There is a spring attendant there who collects the money and will tell you about the spring if you ask.

      I will be taking a trip here next weekend to check out the spring with the kids and see if we are able to get some water. Can anyone advise where do we go to collect the water on pine mountain?

  5. Marissa says:

    So I went up there this memorial day weekend with the kids 5/28/17 and of course the well has been capped. A big green cover eas over the well and all the spouts near there have been sealed. If you come late as I did there is no attendant and abandoned looking homes on the property, they look historic from slavery times. Where the springs once were have been covered and sealed.
    They do however sell the water in local convenience stores 15 miles up the road in Greenville ga at the Valero. We bought some called allqua and it’s authentic even bottled. Slept like a baby once we drank the water when we got home and woke up feeling great. Will continue searching for more springs through out ga and sc that havent been capped.

      The spring is open every Saturday until 12:00….closes at noon. The water is incredibly refreshing. I was there today and got 23 gallons.

    • Cathy Carter says:

      Elliot, we found a spring by accident right outside Georgetown, Ga. It is on the way to the state park there. You can’t miss it; a big open area and spring runs 24/7. No attendants there, the water is free.
