Is the water found in artesian wells in the Pine Barrens safe to drink? Has anyone ever tested their water quality?
I remember seeing people filling bottles at the well in the Atlantic Co. Park in Estell Manor, they swore by it.

Well, I have drunk a few gallons from the Artesian well at the Weymouth Furnace, but once they put the "Not safe for drinking" sign up I mostly stopped. I may test the water myself there now after reading your post to see what it is they are warning about.
