    You should get the spring water tested first. Then if it tests out as good clean drinkable spring water, if you are in the country but close enough to a spring water wholesaler like Nestle or any bottling plant, and if you can come up with the gpm needed to make a profit, you could retire early if you play your cards right.
    Building a pond over it will contaminate it against any future use

    I've been retired for twenty years the pond would be for the wildlife my wells are drilled down into limestone better than bottled water .The pond would be below the actual spring to catch seepage and runoff .

    If you do decide to follow through with that idea...I’d be interested in some off-line photos of how you design your intake..if that was something you wouldn’t mind sharing privately. Assuming you dug the source out and developed it into a piped system.
