A water well in the sea tastes like soda and villagers on that place are raving about it!

Found on Mercedes, Camarines Norte, a water well was built on the shoreline and it can only be seen during low-tides. The water tasted sweet and was producing bubbles just like any other sodas found in the grocery as described by locals. The water from the well was also believed to possess healing properties.

Residents are already accustomed to the water’s taste and freely enjoy drinking from it. They call it the “soda spring”, they even paired it with their favorite alcoholic beverage which in colloquial term called “chaser”.

Since it was believed that the water had healing properties, people from nearby areas goes to the well to drink while others used it for bathing. In a video featured in “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho”, a woman was seen fetching water for her mother who had suffered from a stroke. There is also a woman who was bathing to lessen the itchiness on her skin. BUT the real question is, is it safe for drinking? Does it really heal sickness as what others claimed?

A test was conducted by Camarines Norte Water District and a sample was taken to find out the mineral content of the water, where did it came from and is it safe for drinking, the results were shocking!

According to the initial result, the water was NOT SAFE for drinking. After 24 hours of observation, bacterial growth was seen. Based on the Philippine Standards for Drinking Water, the bacteriological properties of the “soda spring water” failed to meet the criteria for potable water.

When a person drinks water from contaminated sources, it can cause diarrhea and acute gastroenteritis. While most of the residents were not able to experience it, the possible explanation is that their bodies are already immune having been drinking the water for a long time. Tourists or people who have not been accustomed to it can possibly suffer from the said illness. As for healing properties, “saltwater has sodium and minerals like magnesium, it can dry up skin wet lesions but it cannot cure. Some minerals can nourish the condition of the skin but it’s not a treatment”; said a dermatologist in an interview conducted.
