SUNBURY — For more than 20 years, Augusta Water Inc. has offered area residents with the highest quality water sourced from a spring used by American Indians centuries ago.

The realization that American Indians utilized the spring came when a hydrologist from Penn State, who was conducting research at the site, uncovered both parts of an Indian stone grain grinder in pristine condition. The stone was likely used for grinding corn, mustard seed, oats and others.
