Newlands Spring

Most of us have read at least one exposé about how many of the bottled water brands available on the shelves contain nothing other than regular tap water. The good news is, the best spring water available is free!

The spring itself is on a private property in Ohlsson Way off Kildare Road in Newlands. The overflow from the spring runs out of a PVC pipe at the end of the aptly named Spring Way, one road up. Turn into Spring Way, and park at the end of the road (it is a Cul-de-sac). The pipe is in a concrete-and-brick causeway at the fence above the stream.

I fill a collection of 5L plastic containers and my Laken futura canteen up from time-to-time; I am currently looking for a viable +20 litre container that I can fill up weekly.
