The Legend Flows On

Every drop of Mountain Valley Spring Water comes from a single spring surrounded by a protected forest in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains near Hot Springs, Arkansas. In fact, Mountain Valley Spring Company owns and protects over 630 acres of forest that surround the spring. But the source of our water quality goes much deeper than that.

Before rising to the surface in our springhouse, our water is filtered naturally through layer after layer of shale, sandstone, and limestone, acquiring healthy amounts of calcium and magnesium. However, Mountain Valley Spring Water is sodium-free according to Food and Drug Administration standards. The unique geological properties of the surrounding mountains give our water its unique taste. (Unlike some imported waters, there’s no mineral aftertaste with Mountain Valley Spring Water.)

Even the origins of our water couldn’t be purer. A hydrological report using carbon-dating found that the water coming from our spring today first fell as rain over Hot Springs about 3,500 years ago.
