place. small commune in Alberta, Canada built around a spring providing fresh water. The glacial water percolates through cleansing gravel and emerges pure and unconfined. It is promptly bottled and shipped by workers in sterile gowns.

Tourism, including sportfishing, rock climbing and rock collecting is growing and two new wings have recently been added to the playschool.

Craft items, organic produce, sacred rocks, massage stones etc. keep the economy robust and diversified.
Hey! This spring water is great! Does it come from heaven?
