Our naturally alkaline spring source is located in the foothills of the Alleghany Mountains south of Springville, NY near the border of Pennsylvania. These mountains are part of the vast Appalachian Mountain range that spans from Canada to Tennessee.
The Alleghanian formation occurred approximately 325 million to 260 million years ago and was caused by Africa colliding with North America. This collision formed the super-continent Pangaea, which contained all major continental land masses. The collision provoked the formation by exerting massive stress on what is today know as the Eastern Seaboard of North America, forming a wide and high mountain chain. The bedrock of the Alleghenies is mostly limestone, quartzite, and sandstone.
Our protected underground source draws minerals from these surrounding rocks infusing it into the water. This natural filtration process is what gives Eternal water it’s unique and special properties.
Our naturally alkaline spring source is nestled deep in Great Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee at base of English Mountain. Our water comes from a protected spring nearly 2500 ft underground and is surrounded by a 180,000 acre National Park. This ensures isolation away from commercial and industrial pollution.
Our underground spring is comprised of Precambrian rocks formed over a billion years ago from the accumulation of marine sediments and igneous rock in a primordial ocean. The ancient ocean had deposited a thick layer of marine sediments that left behind rocks such as limestone and granite. As the water filters through these rocks, minerals are naturally infused into the water. This natural filtration process is what gives Eternal water it’s unique and special properties.
Our naturally alkaline spring source is located in the Shasta-Trinity Alps of California.
These alps are part of the Klamath Mountain Province, which occupies a large part of North Western California and parts of Southwest Oregon. The collision of Ocean Floor Plates and the Pacific Continental Plate about 200 million years ago, caused terrain uplifting and mountain formations.
These ancient plate collisions and volcanic activity created the perfect conditions for the formation of underground springs. These protected underground springs flow year round and are fed by the snowmelt from the higher elevations. As the water filters through the volcanic rock, minerals are naturally infused into the water. This natural filtration process is what gives Eternal water its unique and special properties.
The over 2 million acres of Mountainous Forestland near which the natural springs are located, are a zoned National Forest, which prevents commercial development and preserves the natural ecology.
