Direct from the Yegua-Jackson Aquifer north of Houston, Yegua Springs is an abundant source of clear, clean and tested artesian water.
The aquifer is uniquely positioned below 350,000 acres of well preserved forestry in the piney woods of East Texas.
Yegua Springs comes from a 329,000 acre renewable aquifer that stretches across southeast Texas, recharges naturally and sustains a temperature of 56 degrees year-round.
The Yegua-Jackson produces water from the sand units of the aquifer, where the water is fresh and ranges from less than 50 to 1,000 milligrams per liter of total dissolved solids.
Our artesian water has been tested to conform to artesian water quality standards and has mineral water and alkaline water capabilities.
Yegua Springs has been tested by TCEQ certified laboratories and is within all EPA and NELAP requirements for spring water. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration classifies mineral water containing at least 250 parts per million total dissolved solids (TDS), originating from a geologically and physically protected underground water source. Yegua Springs water is naturally produced at a mineral content of 279 parts per million of TDS. Alkaline water is reported to neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your metabolism and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively. Some even claim that it can help prevent disease and slow the aging process. Yegua Springs naturally produces water with a 7.6 PH level, higher than that required to be certified as alkaline water.

Yegua springs is currently entitled to extract and transport 23 million gallons of artesian drinking water per year, with the potential to expand those entitlements to over 100 million gallons per year.
Our permits are for 30 years and are renewable. The existing well extracts water from a depth of 155 feet and is self-pressurized. A pump has been installed to increase the flow. There is the opportunity to drill for secondary wells to a deeper depth and significantly increase the amount of entitled water production.
