WHAT IS "NATURAL ARTESIAN WATER"?

By Austyn Frostad on

Artesian water comes from an aquifer; a naturally formed underground chamber consisting of layers of permeable volcanic rock that bears water, overlain by protective rock that limits the entry of contaminants into the confined aquifer and pressurizes the chamber.  In order to access the water, the rock barrier must be penetrated by a borehole or the creation of a well.
