I have been drinking Red Rock Beach Spring (Stinson Beach, CA) water for 4 years. Many locals have had it as their staple water for 9 years or more. And some have been drinking it for longer than I’ve been alive. To think, I have driven by this spring thousands of times when I was younger (I grew up 15 minutes from it) and just recently do I get to enjoy this fresh, free, local fountain of Earth’s most prized element: mountain spring water.
I’ve trusted this spring (which those in the SF Bay Area call for short either ‘Red Rock‘ or ‘The Spring‘) to be sound spring water with all it’s specs to be ideal for daily hydration but after rumors of a possible arsenic, pesticide and bacterial content, I decided to finally have it lab tested!
Below you’ll find the full 6-page lab report as well as a video with me explaining the results.
Before I go on, let me announce that our beloved Red Rock tested quite well! I am extremely satisfied that no heavy metals, arsenic, coliform bacteria, pesticides or volatile organic compounds were detected.
I also need to mention right away that this is an informational test report. At the lab I used, informational tests are performed by the same analysts, using the same laboratory equipment that is used to meet the standards required for compliance testing, however the test report that follows is considered an informational test report. A compliance test can meet local, state or federal regulations, or when results are to be used in a court of law, but an informational test is 1 notch less official. My disclaimer: I choose to be a leader in the field of hydration and I advocate the consumption of exclusively pure wild spring water when at all possible for superior health benefits, yet each individual must learn to carefully and cleanly fill their own spring water vessels and drink at their own discretion.
The Full Lab Analysis Kit from Silver Lake Research tests for 103 contaminants including (1) Bacteria (presence/absence for coliform and E.coli), (19) Heavy metals and minerals, (11) Other inorganic chemicals and physical factors, (5) Organic chemicals – Trihalomethanes, (47) Volatile organic chemicals, and (20) Pesticides, Herbicides and PCBs.

Now for the video! I explain many of the notable detected elements in Red Rock spring water including pH, total dissolved solids (TDS), sodium, silica, magnesium, calcium, sulfate and nitrate.
Watch on YouTube HERE.
This report cost in total $286, which is not cheap, but is about 1/10th of what a full compliance test might cost. The following groups funded the report:
~My meetup group, The Bay Area Spring Water, Wild Food, and Vitality Meetup Group. If you live anywhere even remotely close to the SF Bay area, join our group. We’ll have many spring water adventures scheduled this year.
~My company, Longevity Power – Herbal tonics for the Super Health-Conscious.
~Close friends of mine and true stewards of Red Rock spring, whom I hope you bump into next time you fill up at the spring.
If your local spring(s) is not already tested regularly, I highly encourage you to purchase the Full Lab Analysis Kit from Silver Lake Research or something like it. Hopefully the results will fair well and you will be able to share the results and empower and build confidence in the spring water loving community (which is making a comeback after decades of tap and bottled water domination.) You can use a crowdfunding site to raise funds if you wish – all it would take are a few locals to chip in $50 or so for a lifetime of free water – a no-brainer when compared with the expense of purchasing bottled water near daily.

The San Francisco Bay Area needs more accessible drinking springs for the purpose of supreme hydration, vitality, ecology and reconnecting wild soul:
Out of the several neglected roadside springs, the Lagunitas spring seems to be the perfect fit for the first spring we restore. It will become the best and closest drinking spring for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lat: 38° 0’44.81″N
The spring is located on the west side (uphill side) of Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Samuel P. Taylor State Park, 6 miles west of the Fairfax Community Church (Fairfax, CA).
Here’s a video I did in Janurary 2011 about other neglected springs in the Bay Area:
We can do it!
