What if you were told that Earth’s most abundant source of water is found deep in its core – and is stored in its rocks and magma to be released under the heat and pressure of geologic events and circumstances?  What if you learned that the abundance of this water may exceed the amount of water in our oceans by at least 2-3 times and can most easily be obtained through strategic drilling?
While rarely acknowledged, though referenced in the Bible and other ancient texts, the Earth’s magma and geology is in fact the source of our planet’s most pure water.  This water appears in unexpected places such as mountain springs and desert oases.  Have you ever wondered how a spring could defy gravity and surface at high elevations on the top of a mountain, or provide a green oasis in the middle of a desert?  Primary Water isn’t a mystery, though access to this technology has been largely suppressed historically and only recently begun to emerge in open discussions within scientific communities. 
Along with its abundance, the advantages and value of Primary Water include that it is clean water which has never been in contact with the atmosphere.  As mentioned earlier, access is largely dependent on geography and geology rather than climate and atmospheric rainfall.  It is readily available in drought as well as normal rainfall years.  It can also be localized to certain areas and needs – and, under the right geologic conditions, is plentiful and readily accessible.
All water originates as Primary Water deep in the mantle of the Earth.  Under pressure, it then makes its way to the surface via faults and fissures in the form of volcanic steam, artesian springs, geysers, and oases.  The defining characteristic of Primary Water is that it has never before been on the surface of the Earth and is therefore free of surface pollutants.  When it approaches the Earth's surface, Primary Water mixes with water already here and then becomes part of the Hydrologic Cycle.  Skilled Primary Water experts are able to locate the water as it nears the earth's surface, thus reducing the depth of drilling normally required for water wells.
This magazine offers a snapshot of some of the 20th and 21st Century pioneers of Primary Water research as well as an overview of numerous success stories where Primary Water has come to the rescue - especially in drought years.
Thousands of Primary Water wells already provide fresh water in Australia, the United States, and Africa.  Many villages in Africa have experienced tremendous improvements in their quality of life due to Primary Water wells.  Primary Water is a valuable source of water that could also help refill reservoirs, resupply over-tapped rivers such as the Colorado River, and support agricultural needs.
Could Primary Water solve our global water crisis?  And, might Primary Water offer hope for mankind – and the future survival of Planet Earth?  A resounding yes on both accounts!  Primary Water may well be a missing link to solving water shortages and hunger around the world.
We want to share the life-giving and abundant prospect that Primary Water offers the world and invite you to drill into and explore the many resources and expansive opportunities provided here to learn about this amazing source of water.  Welcome to the world of Primary Water!

As Solano County enjoys an incredible new flow of water in local creeks after the recent Napa earthquake, experts are speculating what might be the source of this “bonus from nature” LINK . Officials report that at least 200,000 gallons of water per day are flowing from Wild Horse Creek, with many other areas reporting similar phenomena. Water quality tests performed by local public works officials confirm that the new water is pure enough to drink. This new water is being added to municipal drinking water supplies…a great blessing to local residents. 
Although federal government geologists report that the new flow of water is likely “shallow groundwater" suddenly released from opening of fractures, other theories exist that offer great hope for a thirsty world. 
During a recent interview, Pal Pauer, a respected American hydrologist, stated that this post-earthquake release is an excellent example of “primary water”, which comes not from rain-fed, shallow aquifers, but rather from very deep sources, far below typical aquifer levels. Primary water sources are independent of rainfall, and appear to be virtually unlimited. Although the science of primary water is not widely known, there is much evidence to support its existence.
In fact, a recent study reported in the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN documented the presence of vast quantities of water locked far beneath the earth’s surface. That study confirmed "that there is a very, very large amount of water that's trapped in a really distinct layer in the deep Earth…[ ]approaching the sort of mass of water that's present in all the world's ocean": LINK
Although primary water originates from geological processes deep within the earth, Pauer said it can be tapped (and has been tapped) for use at or near the surface of the earth. This is because primary water naturally pushes up through fracture zones in the earth’s crust, as illustrated in the diagram above. High pressures in the earth’s mantle make this upward movement of primary water possible and inevitable.  It is not necessary to drill hundreds of miles deep in order to [ ]access this abundant [and valuable] resource. In some cases, primary water can be found at the surface of the earth, as demonstrated by many natural springs. Primary water can also be accessed by drilling near the surface (less than 200 feet). In other cases, earthquakes, such as the recent one in Napa, can remove blockages and open channels for primary water. This can facilitate sudden release of this great gift from below. 
Pauer points out that there are other indications that the new-found water in Solano County is, indeed, primary water. For example, there were no major reports of sinkholes or subsidence associated with the release. If this massive volume of water had been released from a shallow aquifer an equivalent volume of water would have had to replace the volume withdrawn so rapidly (over 1,000 gallons/minute, which is over 10 times the pre-quake flow). Otherwise, massive sinkholes/subsidence would have appeared. The lack of sinkholes or subsidence indicates that the source of these new waters must not be shallow aquifers, but must be primary in origin, from much deeper, prolific sources. These primary water sources, in fact, were so prolific, they were able to sustain surface stability even as massive volumes of water were released. In situations such as this, as depleted aquifers are replenished by primary water, variations in flow may be expected until equilibrium is reached.  
After many decades of successful primary water studies and drilling projects, Pauer has proven that we can ACCESS this abundant source and supplement our current water supply. Primary water may be tapped directly, or may be found commingled with secondary water (e.g. aquifers) fed from atmospheric sources above. As more people become aware of this little-known science, perhaps the Napa earthquake will be remembered for helping us look "down" instead of "up" for solutions to our current, epic drought crisis.
