Wellsprings: A Natural History of Bottled Spring Water
by Francis H. Chapelle
Rutgers University Press

As U.S. Geological Survey hydrologist Francis H. Chapelle reveals in the delightful and informative Wellsprings: A Natural History of Bottled Spring Water, a complex story of geology, hydrology, and history lies behind every bottle of spring water. This book chronicles the history of the bottled water industry in America from its beginnings in Europe hundreds of years ago to the present day. In addition, Wellsprings describes the chemical characteristics that make some waters desirable and provides an overview of the geological circumstances that produce them. Accessibly written and well illustrated, this volume is both a revealing account and a user's guide to natural spring waters.
