What makes a spring have the water pressure that it does?

    Springs have two reasons for the pressure they “spring” from. One is simply gravity. Water inside a mountain will naturally dribble down the mountain when it finds a crevice to escape from within the mountain. The other more fascinating reason is because an underground body of water in a landscape or possibly a mountain (called the water table) is higher than the crevice through which the spring is coming out, therefore the water table weight pushes on the crevice so that water gushes out a but faster. This 2nd type is called an artesian well.
