spruce creek.- I have not seen a tanker drawing water from there for 4-5 years now. If it still occurs, it is at a MUCH lower frequency than in the past. I have seen no evidence of activity around the pipe (wet spots, tracks).
AquaPenn- yes, they still bottle water in milesburg.

TB is correct that corning returned a large part of the water, warmed, but returned.

there's a lot of permits/agreements to sell water in the Spring creek watershed. Most have not been realized yet, thankfully.

There are lots of other waterways that could better support this use. I would reject this permit and suggest they use the Allegheny river.

Presuming I have the right Spring Township...


Which you don't. Kern run is dammed and is a small 25 acre reservoir or so in Snyder County just outside of Beaver Springs. That Spring Township is southeast by 30 or 40 miles as the crow flies I'd say.

The article and video never mention where they wanted to pull the water from. They just stated that it would come out of the Spring Creek watershed and that the area is full of high quality springs (which is true.) I browsed Spring Township's website and they did not disclose where they get their water from. As far as I know there are no sizable reservoirs so it almost had to be pulled from a deep well or a flowing water. Given that they are bottling Deer Park (touted as Spring Water) I would not assume the water will come from a well but from a small, high quality feeder spring that feeds Spring Creek. I could see this reducing the amount of good, cold water from this spring that would help keep Spring Creek cold farther downstream.

On a side note First Quality all ready has a bottling plant that pulls water directly from Bald Eagle Creek in Lock Haven. Notice how that water is not branded as "spring water" and is sold as "purified water.". Every bottle of water discloses any and all water sources.

On another note three of the more prominent springs in the township are Blue Spring, Boiling Springs, and the Big Spring. I am not sure where the first two lie within the township but maybe some of the rest of you do. I could definitely see one of those being the source for the water which Nestle will pull directly from and then pay the township based on gallons used.

Interestingly enough spring water is not as pure and healthful as treated municipal water. Spring water contains slightly elevated levels of naturally occurring radium and radon among other dissolved earth elements. Not enough to be harmful at all, but not the health pure H2O consumers think it is.

Another interesting read from Potter County. Potter County just rejected an application for bottling water this past month.

That's likely true in most cases.

Also consider that muni water is better regulated.

If you don't like that link, there are plenty of others.

About the only time I drink bottled water is if I am traveling, and purely out of convenience. And then, it is labeled purified.

Never Fiji Water.

I could have gone either way with this since I'm not fond of muni water, either. I have an awesome well.

NO REBUTTAL!
