Purskava allika campfire site

Järva County, Endla Nature Reserve
The Oostriku River was guided into a new riverbed, when the culvert was built in 1975. So a small island was formed, on which now the ‘Artesian spring’ campfire site can be found. Several decades ago in the course of mapping works geologists discovered a water vein. At first groundwater gushed out from the pipe to the height of nearly one metre. Now the flow of artesian water has slowed down, like also in Valtri well.
