Our Springs

100% Natural Spring Water

Technically, Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water got its start thousands of years ago when the northern U.S. was covered in ice. As glaciers melted over time, they deposited thick sand and gravel aquifers, which naturally filter the groundwater. In some cases, this water flowed to the surface to create, you guessed it, natural springs — springs we carefully selected as the sources of our fresh-tasting drinking water.

Straight To The Source

8 Great Springs, 1 Great Region

The vast majority of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water comes from three carefully selected spring sources in Michigan. But we also source our fresh-tasting water from other states and selected springs in and around America’s heartland: Sanctuary Spring in Rodney, MI; Evart Springs in Evart, MI; White Pine Springs in Evart, MI; Frontier Springs in New Tripoli, PA, Bangor, PA, Hegins, PA, South Coventry, PA, Pine Grove, PA, Newmanstown, PA, and Oakland, MD; Ruby Mountain in Chaffee County, CO; Stoney Creek in Woodridge, OH*

Did you know? 95% of Ice Mountain® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water is sourced from three natural springs in the heart of Michigan?

Our bottling facility in Stanwood, MI, earned the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

Approximately 90% of water bottled in Stanwood is shipped to our neighbors in the Great Lakes States.

What Is Spring Water Anyway?

Great question. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA): “Spring Water is water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.” To be able to label our product as “spring water,” we have to satisfy stringent standards — standards we proudly meet or exceed. That’s why every bottle of Ice Mountain® Brand Natural Spring Water is labeled as 100% natural.
