The artesian springs located in Eldorado Canyon emanate from one of the most unique sources in the world. This spring water originates as rain and snow just east of the Continental Divide. From there, it enters an aquifer that passes underneath Eldorado Springs. An immense artesian pressure forces the water through a layer of sandstone up to the surface in Eldorado Springs, creating a natural filtering system.
Protecting the source from all other ground waters is a 500-foot thick layer of clay just above the sandstone that is impervious to ground water. Eldorado Springs is surrounded by hundreds of acres of local, state, and federal park land. All these factors contribute to water renowned as one of the purest natural springs in the world and judged to be the best-tasting water in North America.
