Artesian spring water is of interest to your neighborhood hipster because companies that sell artesian bottled water claim that because the water travels at a high pressure through a porous surface, it’s naturally filtered. Furthermore, artesian water companies say that this process is nature’s way of purifying the water while also providing some beneficial minerals from the soil.
It’s important to note, though, that similar to other water brands derived — at least on paper — from a natural geological source, artesian well water does not differ much from most regular well water.
Florida and Georgia are great examples of how artesian well water might not be safe to drink. The National Resources Defense Council says these states have some of the least-safe drinking water in the U.S. Based on population, Texas had the most violations in the U.S., followed by Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia. Moreover, the 2017 report found nearly 80,000 violations impacting drinking water systems in every state.
Artesian water still runs the same risk of exposure to many contaminants found in all spring water, well water, tap water, and bottled water. Unfortunately, in this instance, Mother Nature can’t quite keep up with modern technology.
