The filtration system
ESKA water is filtered by Canadian glacial rocks
The filtration system is unique and involves no human intervention. The water flows gently through it for more than 15 years, simply filtered by nature.
The origins of ESKA water
Snow and rain are the genesis of ESKA spring water. Isolated from the pollution and excesses of human activity, the vast tracts of pristine land in northern Quebec receive snow and rainfall of unparalleled purity.
Each time it rains or snows, the water that accumulates on the forest floor penetrates into the soil and flows to the esker’s underground foundations. Just as nature offers us an inexhaustible supply of snow and rain, the ESKA spring is also constantly replenished.
Meticulous filtration by glacial rocks
The precipitation from the snow and rainfall is then slowly filtered through the layers of the esker’s glacial rocks, sand and gravel. A remnant of the ice age, this underground geological water filtration and storage system dates back 8,000 years.
The melting glaciers left behind extraordinary rock deposits, which accumulated over time, creating successive layers of gravel and sand. Today, the water from the rain and melting snow is naturally filtered as it penetrates into the esker. It must seep through the rocks for several years before it is able to be harvested by ESKA as some of the purest water in the world.
Filtering and protecting ESKA water, the esker is an invaluable treasure. It is the starting point for a natural filtration process that spans more than 15 years, deep in underground formations far removed from humans.
Naturally pure water, directly from the source
The water produced by this unique natural filtration system is pure and clean in both taste and composition. The esker maintains the spring at a low temperature of 5°C, which prevents bacteria from forming and safeguards the purity of the water. The glacial rocks that filter the water leave only a small quantity of mineral salts, which accounts for its pure, unaltered taste. It is also why, every time you drink ESKA spring water, you are treated to a true work of nature that has taken years to perfect.
ESKA Natural Spring Water is 100% Canadian. Each time you take a sip, you’ll enjoy the taste of pure spring water created from rain and melting snow that have accumulated on the forest floor in northern Quebec and been filtered by the glacial rocks of the St-Mathieu-Lac-Berry esker, a unique formation in Canada.
What makes ESKA water so special? The source and its filtration system account for its pure, unique taste.
