Saratoga State Seal Waters
A Quest for Good Health
In 1915, chemist Herbert (Doc) Ant of the State Reservation at Saratoga Springs sampled 15 different springs of still water to find a nutritional, good-tasting drinking water to public demand. After careful research, Ant discovered a water that had a strong taste appeal and was ideal for low-salt diets. Doctor Ant''s water was bottled and commercially sold as "Saratoga State Seal Water."

Regarding Saratoga State Seal Waters. Most of the springs in Saratoga are open to the public, and people really do form obsessions about them - even the foulest tasting ones. This particular spring is very close to Saratoga Spring Water Company (located on Geyser Road just across NY 50 from the park entrance.) which sells bottled spring water in deep blue bottles nationwide.
