You are receiving this email because you are one of the 800+ families, individuals, or businesses that receives our spring water delivery. We have some heavy news to share, but we trust everything happens for a reason, and justice will prevail. This circumstance will catalyze changes to human rights for generations to come. We hope this will inspire people to remember how sacred and important the earth's natural gifts are.
On April 12th the California Department of Public Health made a surprise visit to our cold storage facility in downtown Los Angeles. Representative Steven You, under the direction of Jane Reick (Let us know if you'd like their contact info), claimed our water delivery service is in direct violation of the following loosely written California bi-law-
(b) Prior to bottling or vending water, the water shall be subjected to filtration and effective germicidal treatment by ozone, ultraviolet, carbon dioxide, or an equivalent disinfection process approved by the department, except that the requirements for filtration and germicidal treatment shall not apply to mineral water as defined in and from a source that is subject to the council directive of the European Economic Community pertaining to natural mineral waters, dated July 15, 1980, or that is subject to any other natural mineral water standard in the country of origin that prohibits filtration and germicidal treatment, so long as both of the following conditions are met....
Our cold storage facility In Los Angeles has been instructed not to release our water. California is essentially claiming the public does not have the freedom to purchase water, that isn't irradiated or altered by machines, even if each batch is third-party lab tested safe, and a standard recall procedure is in place. The CA Public Health representative verbally acknowledged to us our water doesn't have any of the harmful microbes irradiation is intended to eliminate.
This is a direct violation of our most basic human right to choose the type of water we and our families drink. We will not accept this harmful interpretation of the law. Just as raw juice and raw dairy have won victories in this great state so shall we.
Exactly one week from today is Aprill 22, Earth Day. We invite you to bring your empty jugs and gather spring water with us and your friends, to show our public support for how this effects us. We will be starting a video campaign and collecting testimonials of why we deserve the right to choose our drinking water.
We will gather 9 AM At 2575 Paloma St, Pasadena, CA 91107
We will be carpooling to the spring that started Fountain Of Truth Spring Water on Big Bear Mountain. It has been lab verified safe and it’s delicious water.
We are doing our best not to leave everyone high and dry. We are already in the process of an immediate transition to a reusable glass spring water delivery system, sterilized with the minimum requirement of UV light. We might be able to catalyze enough community support to challenge this decision, and have an immediate turn over of the State's biased interpretation of the law. We are open to any ideas or collaborations our customers and friends have.
We are proud of our success you have been a direct participant in. We have minor profit margins, and all profits have gone to providing infrastructure for more people to receive water. For the very near future, we can not afford to offer bottle deposit returns, unless we receive funding to do so. Live Spring Water is in a very delicate state, and we appreciate everyone patience as we do our best to resolve this matter.
Unprocessed spring water is what our great grandmothers and all of their mothers before them drank. This is our most ancient form of union with earth. We will be working closer than ever with findaspring.com to provide more locations, tests, and public awareness.

All my relations. I honor you
In this circle of life with me today. I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in this prayer...
To the Creator, for the ultimate gift of life, I thank you.
To the mineral nation that has built and maintained my bones and all foundations of life experience, I thank you.
To the plant nation that sustains my organs and body and gives me healing herbs for sickness, I thank you.
To the animal nation that feeds me from your own flesh and offers your loyal companionship in this walk of life, I thank you.
To the human nation that shares my path as a soul upon the sacred wheel of Earthly life, I thank you.
To the Spirit nation that guides me invisibly through the ups and downs of life and for carrying the torch of light through the Ages. I thank you.
To the Four Winds of Change and Growth, I thank you.
You are all my relations, my relatives, without whom I would not live. We are in the circle of life together, co-existing, co-dependent, co-creating our destiny. One, not more important than the other. One nation evolving from the other and yet each dependent upon the one above and the one below. All of us a part of the Great Mystery.
Thank you for this Life.
