Description

Just east of Fayette, OH. Great tasting fresh water. Iron content is high. An old man pulled up while I was there and informed me that locals have been using this spring for years. It is normal for iron content to be high in this region.

I was turned off by the large rusty bucket, lol. I have been assured that this is a completely natural occurrence of water emerging from the earth.

Nearest Address

    Was out riding by bike today (95 degrees out) and this was a god send!  Super cold iron rich water!  A local guy that also stopped said that there were a few more in the area.  Anyone know where?  

  3. Can’t wait to drive out & find this little spring~sounds wonderful!

  4. Went there today, good tasting water. Good flow also.

  5. 41.675492,-84.262927 are the actual coordinates. Just about a half mile east of the pin on the map.

    Could the high iron content actually create health problems – especially for men – who don’t need as much? Also, I’m new to this site, and the concept sounds AMAZING. But I have to ask, are these springs ever tested for chemical runoff from farmer’s fields, etc.? Thanks!

    I went here yesterday. If you click “directions” above to this spring, you will be about 5 min away from the spring. Thank you Oenema for posting the exact coordinates. If you put these in your GPS it will take you right to the spring:
    41.675492,-84.262927

    I have been getting water from here for a year now and it’s so good! It’s the only water I drink so I take a drive over about every 2-3 weeks. Haven’t had the water tested before, but I do believe it is high in iron. The water has a very slight tint to it from the iron. I actually can’t drink any sort of tap or bottled water anymore because it all tastes so gross to me now that I have been spoiled with this tasty water for so long. I would most definitely recommend!

    Visited this spring a couple times in the last few months. Water tastes clean. Fulton Co. Health Dept tests this water yearly in August. Last visit 3.2018 water was cloudy/milky settles when water sits. Is this normal for springs to be clear then cloudy?
