      Hey, we do that in Olympia, Washington. There are several artesian wells around the city, one in a public parking lot downtown. People congregate by car, bike, and foot to fill their containers from a gushing ice-cold flow out of a pipe. Me too, when I am in the neighborhood.

      "It's the Water" used to be the slogan of the now-defunct Olympia Beer Co. I wonder why artesian wells occur in some places. Slovakia must sit on some interesting aquifers, considering that they have rare cold-water geysers.

My cousin's wife said that they use their "plumbed" water for cooking, washing, etc., but that she bikes down to the spring with a few plastic jugs to get the spring water for drinking.
