Manitou Spring Water

The spring water at Manitou Spring is renowned for its ancient mineral waters.

Ancient water that’s been trapped in the cavernous system slowly erodes the limestone, and this process creates carbonic acid. This actually makes the mineral water carbonated, which then forces it back into the cracks of the rocks where it came, which allows it to absorb high concentrations of sought after minerals, like Lithium, sodium bicarbonate, and more!

This act of nature is an expression of the natural wonder of the entire surrounding area in manitou Springs, but also a testament to the clean living conditions that comes with living in the area.

Each with its own history, there are 8 different spots around the community to easily access and drink the ancient mineral water for yourself.
