Non-artesian wells need mechanical pumps to bring water from the aquifer to the surface. Most people don’t think highly of well water, so labels rarely trumpet such an origin.

 But this negative public opinion is unfair, as many blind water tastings favor well water over spring and artesian. Well water is similar to spring water in its wide range of TDS and mineral composition. Highland Spring, Tau, and Hildon are examples of waters sourced from wells.
