Our Water

11- What is Artesian Water?

Artesian water comes from an artesian well. Water from an artesian well flows naturally to the ground surface. This means there is no human intervention such as drilling or pumping.

12- How do our water captations work?

Our water captations collect water that flows naturally to the ground surface. Water then flows by gravitational pull from the mountain to the production line. This means there is no use of electrical or diesel powered pumps to flow water from the mountain to the production line.
