W ater. That's what attracts people to Hot Springs, Arkansas. Hot Springs National Park is an unusual blend of a highly developed park in a small city surrounded by low-lying mountains. In 1832 the Federal Government took the unprecedented step of setting aside four sections of land for the preservation of the natural thermal mineral waters and their recharge area. This act established much of the area now known as Hot Springs National Park as the first U.S. Reservation.

T en's of thousands of visitors and local residents drink or use the natural thermal mineral waters each year, for they have found the water to be pleasant tasting and lacking the traditional sulfur smell associated with a large number of natural hot springs.

T he water coming from the 47 protected hot springs located along the lower slopes of Hot Springs Mountain maintains an average 143° at their source at an average flow rate of 850,000 gallons per day.
