Nine springs are still exploited in the Vichy basin. Four of them are consumed by the curists in the thermal refreshment rooms: Chomel, Grande Grille, Hôpital and Lucas. The two Bellerivois springs, Antoine and Boussange, are mixed for thermal treatments: showers or baths. The Dome and Lys springs, in Abrest, are used to prepare thermal mud. The Lucas spring is used in the composition of Vichy cosmetics. The Célestins spring is bottled. And, as nothing is lost, the salts extracted from the mineral springs of Vichy or its basin are used to make the famous Vichy pastilles. Passers-by are often unaware, that under their feet, precious waters circulate for about ten kilometers.
