Does ARROWHEAD Water really come from Lake Arrowhead?

On occasion when I tell people I live in Arrowhead, the question arises… “Is that where Arrowhead Water comes from?”

Have you heard of Arrowhead Water?  Have you ever drank Arrowhead Water?  The big question is, where does Arrowhead Water come from?

arrowhead-mountain-spring-water-profile

 

The following info was found on Wikipedia:

Arrowhead Water, also known as Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water, is a brand of drinking water that is sold in the western United States, particularly in Arizona, the Northwest, and in California, where it is sometimes produced.

Discovery

Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water takes its name from a natural rock formation in the San Bernardino Mountains shaped like a giant arrowhead. The arrowhead is naturally barren; it is not manicured in any way. Native American legend says the formation was burned in the mountain by the fall of an arrow from Heaven, showing the way to the healing hot springs. Adjacent streams and springs are the original source and namesake of Arrowhead water.

The first documented reference to Arrowhead springs (Agua Caliente) was in records of priests stationed at Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, around 1820. David Noble Smith was the founder of the first sanitarium facilities at Arrowhead Springs in 1863, which were used to treat patients with tuberculosis and numerous other ailments. By the 1880s, the Arrowhead waters were famous for their supposed curing powers. By the early 20th century, the hot springs were a popular resort for tourism and vacationing.

 

History of the Arrowhead Water Brand

In 1909, The Arrowhead Springs Company was formed and the company’s water products were marketed in Southern California. The water was transported from Arrowhead Springs, north of San Bernardino, California, to Los Angeles in glass-lined railroad tank cars. In 1917, the bottling operations moved to a new plant in Los Angeles. In 1929, the Arrowhead Springs Company merged with the company that marketed Puritas water, and began co-marketing the Puritas products with Arrowhead water. Puritas water products were first introduced in Los Angeles in 1894.

The Arrowhead and Puritas brands were bottled in the same plants and co-marketed until the 1970s. Arrowhead Springs marketed the brands in separate containers that sometimes carried the Arrowhead or Puritas names alone, but containers were often labeled “Arrowhead and Puritas.” The Arrowhead Beverage Company was the bottler for many different brands of water and soft drinks including seltzer, fruit-flavored soda, and ginger ale.

In 1932, another important development for the company happened in the Los Angeles area, as it was named the official water refreshment of that year’s Olympic Games, held at the City of the Stars.

Arrowhead water returned to the Olympic Games again in 1984, when the games were again held in Los Angeles.

Water sources

As of 2008, according to the their bottle label, sources of water used are:

A local water source since 2010 is located in Ruby Mountain Springs, Chaffee County, Colorado.

Other labels found in Washington list a source of the water as Hope Springs, Hope, British Columbia.

  • Livermore, CA Municipal Water Supply (Label on the orange cap on the 5 gallon Eco-Sense bottles used in dispensers)

ARE YOU REMODELING YOUR HOME? YOU MIGHT NEED NEW TOILETS.

I just read this article in California Real Estate magazine May 2014 and felt it necessary to share with you all.  This is very valuable info and will affect most of us soon.

 

[ WATER CONSERVATION ]

Prepare for New Retrofitting Law

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, property owners who obtain permits to remod- el a property that was built prior to 1994 are required to retrofit with toilets that use no more than 1.6 gallons per flush, showerheads with flow rates of no more than 2.5

gallons per minute, and other interior fixtures that use less than 2.2 gallons of water per minute.

This applies to all single-family property permits, as well as multifamily and commercial property permits where 10 percent or more of the square footage is included in the remodel.

By Jan. 1, 2017, all residential properties in Cali- fornia that were built prior to 1994 will need to be in compliance with water fixtures as outlined above, which will bring them up to the same standards as homes built since 1994.
