Mourners filled the local Pentecostal Tabernacle on Tuesday afternoon, with extra chairs needing to be brought in. People lined up for a couple of hours ahead of the service so they could get a seat.

In San Francisco, "unfiltered, untreated, un-sterilized spring water" from Live Water is selling for $60.99 for a 2.5 gallon jug — and is flying off the shelves, the New York Times reported. Startups dedicated to untreated water are gaining steam. Zero Mass Water, which allows people to collect water from the atmosphere near their homes, has already raised $24 million in venture capital.

People — including failed startup Juicero's cofounder Doug Evans — are gathering gallons of untreated water from natural springs, venturing out onto private property by night to get the water. Evans told The Times that he and his friends brought 50 gallons of raw water to Burning Man.

"I'm extreme about health, I know, but I’m not alone with this,” Evans said. "There are a lot of people doing this with me. You never know who you’ll run into at the spring."

Fans of the untreated water are not backed by science. However, many told the times that they feel confident that they are getting health benefits from drinking "live" water.

For example, Mukhande Singh, the founder of Live Water, told The Times that his startup's water expired after a few months — something he says is normal for "real water."

“It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery," Singh said. "If it sits around too long, it'll turn green. People don’t even realize that because all their water’s dead, so they never see it turn green."
