ephyrhills bottled water: behind the scenes at Zephyrhills Natural Spring Water bottling plant

Published 5/19/2011
The Zephyrhills waterworks were bought out in the 1980's. New owner Nestle Waters and the Thomas family, which owns this land, surrounded the springs with a nature preserve and education center that Karen Pate manages.

Inside the Crystal Springs Preserve there are 140 different small springs. Altogether, they pump out about 40 million gallons of water a day. Just one crack in the earth, easily visible from a wooden footbridge at the preserve, sends forth 11 and a half million gallons each day.
