The forcing of the spring to the surface can be the result of a confined aquifer in which the recharge area of the spring water table rests at a higher elevation than that of the outlet. Spring water forced to the surface by elevated sources are artesian wells.
This is possible even if the outlet is in the form of a 300-foot-deep (91 m) cave. In this case the cave is used like a hose by the higher elevated recharge area of groundwater to exit through the lower elevation opening.
Nome, Alaska: ‘The spring water is as hot as I can bear. The effect is miraculous’
"As the population increases many of our water sources get contaminated, for example we cannot advise people in urban setting, to use spring water because it is all contaminated. Originally when we drilled boreholes, water was safe but now when you go to urban centers, many of the water sources are contaminated," Kabirizi said.

Donald Trump is escalating his attacks on Sen. Marco Rubio with a special delivery for his rival: "Trump Ice Natural Spring Water."
Trump has previously trained his fire on Rubio, claiming he has the worst voting attendance record in the U.S. Senate and that he sweats a lot. But CNN learned that the Trump campaign sent a "care package" to Rubio's Washington campaign office that contained a 24-bottle case of "Trump Ice Natural Spring Water," with Trump's face on it, two "Make America Great Again" towels and bumper stickers and a note reading, "Since you're always sweating, we thought you could use some water. Enjoy!"
The taste of the spring water is so different from chlorinated tap water that Sarah Myers’ dog won’t drink water from the tap. One of her customers has a cat that also prefers the taste of spring water.
Both Jim and Sarah Myers use the water in their homes. Jim Myers said it makes coffee and tea taste better.
Nome, in the north-west of Alaska, is an old gold-rush metropolis peopled by workers from out of town. It’s rather splendid, and in the sweep of its town centre you get the feeling that it has hardly changed since the glory days. Huge civic buildings of yesteryear (nearly all of which have massive old gold pans outside their entrances like the trade symbols of medieval merchants) jockey with bustling engineering companies and colourful bars.
