Thousand Springs City is home to Cerulean Waters, a firm specializing in water purification systems. It had its origins as a bottled mineral water company that look advantage of the planet's many mineral springs. With the rise of Star League technology, the Trethel family used their riches to open five water purification factories, four of which were destroyed by House Kurita's special forces units at the start of the First Succession War. The remaining factory in Thousand Springs is on the verge of complete collapse because it lacks parts and because of centuries' worth of jury-rigged repairs.
Thanks to the rise of the NAIS and the discovery of the Star League Memory Core, however, Cerulean Waters experienced a technological renaissance. Borrowing heavily to upgrade its factory on Cerulean, the company bounced back, ultimately opening factories on two more Federated Suns worlds, one in the former Sarna March and even one in the Lyran Alliance over the course of the next three decades. During that same timeframe, it began to construct major water extraction and purification plants on worlds, both major and minor, throughout the Federated Suns, marketing its product as Cerulean Aqua. Though not as high-end as other popular spring and mineral waters, the Cerulean Aqua brand is becoming more and more popular, with smaller purification systems now installed in food markets all over the Suns.
