Mountain Valley Spring Company is proud to have recently played an important role in The Nature Conservancy’s continuing restoration of the Middle Fork of the Saline River in Arkansas!

canoing on the Saline River in ArkansasMountain Valley’s springs are located on almost 2,000 undisturbed acres in watershed of the Middle Fork. This river has been designated by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality as an “Extraordinary Resource Waterbody” and an “Ecologically Sensitive Waterway.” As part of the restoration process, the Nature Conservancy required rocks to halt erosion of the river bank and improve habitat for the many species of wildlife using the river. The Conservancy approached Mountain Valley about donating the required rock which is easily accessible and plentiful on company property and naturally, we were more than pleased to assist in such a worthy project.

Mountain Valley salutes the many good works of The Nature Conservancy and wishes it great success in its continuing progress on improving the Saline River and entire Ouachita River system.

This from a newspaper that has given a lot of ink to the anti-bottled water crowd! Even more interesting, tomorrow the Natural Resources Defense Council is going after the EPA for lax regulation of atrazine in tap water. This is a long article but a good read. It points out what bottled water people have been saying for a long time: the spikes allowed in contaminants in tap water are a major difference in quality regulations since bottled water has zero tolerance for spikes. In other words, averaging your test results to show compliance is not allowed for bottled water the way it is for tap water.
