Oral History excerpt: "It's got a lot of minerals in it"
- Main contributor
Ledbetter, Andrea (narrator)
Andrea Ledbetter, historic conservationist and co-founder of the Decay Devils, discusses the mineral content of the Chase Street spring water. "If you're a person who likes to have their bright pearly whites, you know you have to be a little careful with drinking a lot of it." She uses a filter to remove some of the minerals before drinking the water. This was one of a group of excerpts gathered under the subject heading of Water Quality and Taste for a digital and in-person exhibit of the Spring at Small Farms Oral Histories. The digital exhibit can be seen at https://iusbarchives.omeka.net/exhibits/show/spring-at-small-farms/home.
