Since long time ago, people have been trying to capture the spring in order to avoid damage. The oldest way of capturing, which we often encounter here today, was clearing the spring and shallowly capturing the mineral water with a wooden manhole ring, hollow stem or stump. However, this capture is not suitable for wider use of the source because of the source pollution risk.
As time went it was necessary to find new sources and increase the profitability of the original springs. In 20s and 30s of 20th Century the capture of all known sources was newly modified. At the same time many new springs were found out. Nowdays the wide use springs (for bottling etc.) are permitted to capture with boreholes only, precisely directed into the outlet paths of spring below its level of dispersion in the weathered surface layers.
