As the glacier melted the water running off its surface soaked into the surrounding ground only to emerge again in protected springs. The springs used for Poland Spring natural water are all located in the northeast region of the United States. Protected by the natural landscape in this region the water retains a fresh, natural taste. Poland Springs has been a popular brand of bottled water since 1845. The company behind this brand employs a team of geologists and resource managers to ensure the environment providing the water remains protected. This team also monitors the flow of water and precipitation in the region to make sure the springs retain their sustainability. To preserve the integrity of the water, it is bottled at its source as it emerges from the ground.
