WATER WISDOM

GEAR AND GUIDANCE FOR SECURING YOUR SAFE WATER SUPPLY
© GETTY IMAGES

Unlike the animals that roam the various environments throughout the world and gulp up water wherever it’s found, humans don’t have that luxury — at least not without the probability of incurring serious illnesses and possible death.

Quenching your thirst is not always an easy process and it’s one that requires three key steps. First, water must be found. Second, the water must be processed by one of numerous means and, finally, the water must be put in pr oper containers so it may be safely stored or efficiently and conveniently transported.

With careful attention to each step, the crucial chore of getting plentiful safe drinking water can be transformed into a relatively easy system. Many options for treating raw water can be utilized to ensure your parched lips will be sated, your body hydrated and the risk of dying fr om lack of water rendered almost nonexistent.

1.1 We Have Options

Humans have an advantage over most other land animals in that we’re capable of transporting a supply of water beyond what we carry within our bodies. We have also developed ways of making bad water potable, further extending our habitat. We have gone beyond the limitations of having to find open surface water, such as ponds, lakes, creeks and rivers.
