ABOUT BLUE SPRINGS
Blue Springs’s remarkably pure water flows from a cold, deep quartzite spring in the Pine Mountain ridge of Georgia. Other high volume springs emanate from sedimentary rock like limestone which result in a high mineral content. Quartzite is a hard, non-carbonate rock. Blue Springs produces exceptionally pure water with just 31 ppm Total Dissolved Solids. Water this pure is rarely found in nature. The result is refreshingly crisp water with a noticeably clean taste.
Blue Springs and the surrounding land have always been special to the Callaway family. Cason and Virginia Callaway, founded Callaway Gardens in the fifties with a goal to connect man and nature in a way that benefits both. Today, Callaway Gardens is a 6,500 acre nature oriented resort that hosts 750,000 visitors annually
COMMITMENT TO CONSERVATION
The spring watershed contains a mosaic of ecosystems rich in biodiversity including three high priority habitats as designated by the State of Georgia's Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). Habitats include: Montane Longleaf Pine Forests, Piedmont Bay Swap, and Plumleaf Azalea Ravine.
The Georgia Forestry Commission recognized the ecological significance of the Blue Springs land and facilitated a conservation easement. The Callaway family is proud to continue the family legacy of conservation with Blue Springs. Blue Springs and the surrounding watershed are now legally protected for eternity.
