Finding great water to drink is so important for health, especially if you are subject to a municipal water source and wish to eliminate chlorine, etc from your water, but purchasing bottled water from the store can add up both in terms of money and waste.
A solution we've been able to find is locating and using a spring water.
Source: Someone locally turned me on to the spring we use and she showed us the website I linked to. You can use it to find a spring in your local area.

Here is the Find a Spring site's disclaimer: Please independently test all spring water before you make the decision to consume it.

I live in Hot Springs Arkansas, and we are blessed with free water from the hot springs that are known world wide for their health benefits. This water is piped to "Jug fountains" in several places in town. Some of the fountains dispense hot water and others dispense cold water. If you have Mountain Valley bottled spring water in your area, this is collected and bottled here from a spring a few miles outside of town.

We used to go collect spring water when I was a kid, but now I have no clue if any of these spots are still available. The city used to provide pumps for them.
This link is working fine for me, from the article.
That's amazing! We live in hot Springs nc
