Tahoe Artesian Water™ surges from our deep artesian aquifer, fed by pristine snow melt in the spring that’s naturally filtered through hundreds of feet of granite. The result is an incomparably pure, crisp water with a high alkalinity and mineral content that requires no processes such as distillation, chlorination or reverse osmosis.
Under the soft, smooth taste of Tahoe Artesian Water belies its high pH of 8.2. Naturally occurring, yet with no strong mineral taste, it’s a pleasant way to enjoy the benefits of an alkaline water without unnecessary processing.
Generations have protected this aquifer, located high in the Sierra Nevadas, to preserve the water’s exceptional quality and taste. As unique as the mountains themselves, it is the only place you can find this exceptional and distinctive taste.
We’re proud to provide water that is exceptional both in taste and sustainability. And most of all, we’re proud to do so in harmony with our source. We make every effort to source packaging materials locally and use Eco Glass bottles, which are better for the environment and have a reduced carbon impact.
Frequently asked questions
What is artesian water?
Did you know that artesian water is actually a specific type of spring water?
Artesian wells are different from traditional wells because they don’t require a pump to extract water from underground. Instead, they rely on a natural phenomenon that involves the water flowing down into a porous material, such as rock, sand, or gravel, then being forced to the surface and out of a well due to the high pressure built up between two impermeable underground surfaces.
What is an artesian well?
Artesian wells are a lot like other wells, but one key difference is that they're free flowing. With other wells, you need a pump to extract water from underground, but artesian wells have enough pressure in the aquifer to force the water to the surface on its own.
That's because they're artesian: they originate from an aquifer and travel through porous rock until they reach the surface.
Does your water come from Lake Tahoe?
No, while we are called Tahoe Artesian our aquifer is actually high in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the majestic Tahoe area.
