TAHOE ARTESIAN WATER™
Not just another bottled water.
High in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains and deep in California’s Lake Tahoe National Forest is the Wells Family protected deep granite artesian aquifer, the source of Tahoe Artesian Water™. A water so pure it requires no treatment, and, a source in perfect harmony with the environment.
Your water should taste great.
High in the Sierra Nevada Mountains lies the Tahoe National Forrest. In the winter the snow falls cold, crisp and clean. During the spring the snow begins to melt on its journey through hundreds of feet of granite deep below the mountains. Pressure begins to build as it reaches deep below the granite to the natural aquifers.
Water then surges back to the surface under its own pressure where we collect it without any mechanical means. Along the journey, Tahoe Artesian Water™ is naturally infused with minerals and trace elements giving our water the character and terroir of the surrounding rock.
In order to maximize freshness, Tahoe Artesian Water™ only bottles in small runs so that each bottle of water still tastes as great as the day it first surged from deep within our single artesian well situated 6000 feet down in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Tahoe Artesian Water™ is a gift from nature proudly shared with the local community, sold only in Northern California, a premier but local choice for over 13 million Californians. We take great care to share this rare local treasure with you while staying in balance with the surrounding ecosystem.
Your water should be healthy.
pH is a chemistry term to define and quantify the number of hydrogen ions. It actually means “the power of Hydrogen.” Substances with a pH level less than 7 are considered acidic, while substances with a pH level greater than 7 are considered alkaline.
Numerous medical experts agree that increasing your alkaline intake with healthy foods and water is one of the best things you can for your health and well being. This relationship between your pH level and your oxygen intake can have a dramatic effect on preventing illness and disease. A boost in your pH levels boosts your body’s oxygen intake, and, as a general rule, pathogens do not survive in an oxygen-rich, alkaline environment.
This is one of the reasons we feel so revived when bathing in sea water. Seawater has roughly the same trace elements and minerals as, and closely matches, human plasma. The healing benefits of the sea and its relatively neutral pH have been touted for centuries — but naturally, we can’t drink this water. Tap water is relatively neutral at 7.0, but choosing a higher pH drinking water, such as Tahoe Artesian Water™, helps with the desired health benefits.
Tahoe Artesian Water™
Your water should be sustainable.
Our team is deeply and passionately committed to developing an innovative supply, production, and distribution model that minimizes environmental impact while providing the consumer with an exceptional product.
HOW DO WE COMPARE?
A leading comparable bottle of artesian water requires 250g of CO2 per bottle. Our bottle only requires 6.9g of CO2 per bottle. Our efforts to minimize CO2 begin at our production facility where the natural pressure of our artesian aquifer gently propels water upwards into our stainless steel storage tank. This process occurs without the use of electricity and is carbon neutral and completely sustainable. Because the aquifer is artesian, we only receive and collect the excess water, allowing the aquifer to remain full and in balance with the environment.
OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We are proud that 90% of our packaging originates within 120 miles of our facility. By using local partners we minimize the carbon released during the transportation of our packaging and products. We continue to seek innovative ways to reduce the environmental impact of our bottles. Our PET bottle is both recyclable and reusable, and we will soon introduce pre-recycled (rPET) bottles.
