More information:

The Lignat intermittent spring known as "la Gargouillère" (Puy de Dôme - France). It is a matter of an intermittent natural spring which throws out (every two minutes or so) a small gush of a fresh, sparkling and slightly sulphurized water. This phenomenon, called "cold water geyser" is caused by the pressure of water dissolved carbon dioxide. Source intermittente de Lignat dite : "les Gargouilles" ou "La Gargouillère" (Saint-Georges-sur-Allier (63800), Puy-de-Dôme (63), France). Il s'agit d'une source naturelle projetant par intermittence (toutes les deux minutes environ) un petit "geyser" d'une eau fraiche, pétillante et légèrement soufrée. Ce phénomène appelé « geyser d'eau froide » est dû à la pression du dioxyde de carbone dissout dans l'eau.
