The Growing Water Crisis Around Us

We know that you bring your containers to our spring searching for a trusted source of clean water.  For now, it is mostly a secret that visitors have started to share among their friends and families.  By sharing these stories, people learn of the nourishment that our spring provides but we also hear the stories from those who have searched for clean water like ours.  We encourage you to share those stories with as many people as possible.

In the future, sites like ours will become more sought after as local water departments are unable to fix the problems of treating the unwanted chemicals in our drinking supply by dumping even more chemicals to remedy it.  It is a fruitless effort that is wrought with even more harm to our citizens.  Water, the control of water, is going to reach a crisis level here in the U.S. within our lifetime.  All the warning signs are there.

The legal war between Georgia and Florida has been going on for years.  Georgia, whose growth around Atlanta led to the damming of the Chattahoochee River to form Lake Lanier as a drinking reservoir, has been a source of legal action for years.  Florida claims that the river once supplied fresh water to its residents and was necessary for to support oyster (and other wildlife) along the Florida coast.  The Supreme Court ruled that Georgia needed to prove that it could continue to hold back the water, signaling that Florida could end up getting more water flow … they the issue becomes, what about Georgia?  Yet another water crisis that has already cost both states over $100 million in just legal battles!

Here is the water situation closer to home:

Norton, MA – The city had such bad water last year that they also made the news for brown and smelly water coming from the tap.  The solution was patience while a new water plant was being built … completions was scheduled for summer 2019 but delays and cost overruns have put it behind schedule.

Scituate, MA – The water in Scituate, down on the Cape, has a reputation for having bad water flowing from the top.  However, today’s water quality has become so bad that the water has both an offensive color and smell.  Upset, concerned and angry citizens filled a town hall to let Scituate town officials have a piece of their mind.  After a five year project to clean up the water, residents went to a town hall meeting to demonstrate that they are frustrated.  According to reports here on Boston 10 (NBC), residents who even installed filter systems could not keep up with the amount of pipe sediment flowing into their homes.  Some residents bagged their filters from home and showed that were so filled with debris that they were rendered useless after just a few days of use.  Citizens were assured that by next year, the final patches to the water improvement program will be complete and they can begin an extensive flushing program.

Since our bodies are over 90% water, make a choice to put only the finest water into your body.  That water comes from natural sources, rich in earth’s minerals, just like the one at our Pocahontas spring.

Many people who come to our spring travel from miles away to fill their containers … some travel for over an hour.  Keep coming and encourage your friends in Norton and Scituate to visit us to get a taste of what pure water from the earth tastes like.

Set your GPS to 165 Lowell Street, Lynnfield, MA 01940.  Bring your family, those who are sick, those seeking peace and those who are thirsty for water that is pure.  All are welcome.

The Spring Hears You, Let Lynnfield ZBA Hear You Now

There are feelings that motivate us into action, one of those is love.  We are extremely thankful for the outpouring of support to protect the water that flows from deep in the earth to this sacred spring in Lynnfield.

Springs have provided life, hope and joy around the world.  Our spring is no exception and we appreciate everyone of you who have taken the time to visit us.  We know that people not only come to fill their containers with our mineral water, but most take time to visit our peaceful pools.  This link between water and spirit is what makes our spring so special.
As you know from our previous blog, we asked you to reach out to the Lynnfield Zoning Board of Appeals to let them know how you feel about the spring.  While we have a team to represent us at the upcoming meeting, it is your support that secures our future.  The ZBA has heard from you and WE continue to hear from you.  Here are a few of our favorites:
My wife and I live in Bedford and we discovered this beautiful source of clean natural spring water only recently.  My wife has been struggling with serious health problems for a very long time.  She has numerous allergies and has bad reactions to many things that the rest of us take for granted and do not think twice about.  Water has always been something of a struggle for her, since the chlorine and other additives in municipal tap water have bothered her stomach.
 
I found the Boston Clear Water Company online and I took her to the spring to fill some containers.  She loved the water and the look of happiness on her face when she could drink it without her stomach becoming upset was something I will never forget.  We recently found out about the issues that the Boston Clear Water Company is facing with their abutters.  We are afraid that this amazing and historical spring will be shut down and no one will be able to benefit from the water again, including my sick wife.
 
I would like to respectfully request that the Lynnfield ZBA consider how important this water is to people like my wife and to find a solution to allow us all to continue to enjoy it for years to come.  I know that as a new customer, I would gladly pay more in order to continue to get this water.

I have very fond memories of visiting that spring as a child with my father,  who has now passed. Closing the spring to the public would be such a heartbreaking travesty. The spring provides a connection for everyone to nature that is increasingly scarce in our busy industrial and computer driven world. For many of us it  also provides a closer connection to family. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to shut down such a beautiful natural blessing. Please don’t allow this to occur.

My friends have come to the spring for years.  I am writing on their behalf.  I have come once and sensed the healing properties of the water and the place.  Please Boston Clear Water open for the public.  It is too precious not to be.
