    Thanks for the info. this was really driven home for me this week with the water contamination fiasco in West Virginia. I have family in the affected area and have been in contact with them to make sure they are ok.

    It leads me to a question regarding water filtration and pruification: is there anything out there that is dependable for removing chemical contamination from water? not sure if it is doable due to the different composition of chemical compounds but thought I would ask.

    Very few, if any that most preppers can afford will do anything with chemical contamination. The other thing about chemicals is even when the water is treated you still would need to have the capability on hand to test the water to ensure it is safe for consumption, which is another thing most preppers will not have access to post event.

    The best way to combat it as a prepper is to store enough water for a month. In isolated events like WV, a month should be more than enough water to have on hand to get you and your family through the event. After that, you might want to consider alternative water procurement methods – rain catchment system, deep well, etc. in order to be prepared.

    If anything WV should teach all of us that the event may not be TEOTWAWKI but more of an isolated event that makes our preps pay off.

      Have you thought about some 55 gallon containers for storage? Check out this post if you haven’t seen it. Add a container once a year and you’ll have quite a bit of water stored before you know it, each with a 5 year shelf life.

      Check out some of these deals here and here.

        Yes I have, especially after looking into the above article in context to the W. VA. situation I mentioned. I have some water stored, as well as a functioning well in the property, so have been a bit complacent on water storage, in all honesty. Groundwater contamination would definitely negate the well water source.

        So goes the continual learning!
