Have you ever wondered where does the water for Blue Waters bottled water come from?
The answer is easy, it’s from an artesian well! This artesian well is located in
Orange Grove, at the manufacturing facilities of Blue Waters. You are probably thinking
now, what is an artesian well? Let’s answer this for you. An artesian well is created
when pressure builds up below the ground, becoming great enough that water flows
naturally to the surface. The name "artesian" is derived from Artois, France, where
such wells were sunk as early as 1126. In some instances, a well is drilled into
an aquifer, a water-bearing layer of porous rock. The aquifer lies between two impervious
layers of rock, that is, layers of rock through which water cannot pass. The weight
of the water held in the upper portions of the aquifer results in the pressure that
forces water to rise in the well. Where there is a natural opening in the impervious
layer above an aquifer, water is sometimes forced to the surface, forming an artesian
spring. The water in many artesian systems is pure, while in others it is strongly
mineralized. Our water is sourced directly from one such aquifer to supply our state-of-the-art
bottling plant with the natural water that goes into Blue Waters products. Blue
Waters then purifies this artesian well water, bottles it and then delivers directly
to our customers from our facilities. We take tremendous pride in our prompt and
efficient delivery service, as well as our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.
