    Matrimony Spring, Moab

    I noticed someone getting water out of it last week as we drove by.

    Is it open again? Did someone cut the pipe?

    It's been open for at least a year I think. Or at least people have been stopped there filling up more often then not. I really don't know much about it except that it was once closed. It makes me at least a little nervous to drink water the was once "not safe" but is now "safe"...

    I did some research on this since I posted. It appears that it was originally closed because of a trace of bacteria to avoid liability to the city. They talked about some expensive drilling to determine if the bacteria was in the rock or just at the outlet while they considered opening it again..

    I didn't find anything about it being officially open.

    Good enough for me.

    I think it's more dangerous to pull over and fill up at the spot due to traffic than worry about the mythical health issues of the water from that spring-.
