Not hard to see why clean, clear springs were held in such reverence by our ancestors.


Would our ancestors not perhaps have used streams to wash away their own effluence??? So perhaps they would've been regarded as "sacred" as a cleanser as much as the other uses for water(already mentioned).


I think they would have differentiated between sacred wells/springs etc. and water sources for practical uses.


Unless they were considered sacred since they carried human waste away...
