A Personal Response From Dave Webster (Living Off The Grid)
It's so easy to have struggles like this. The good part is that the U.S. is a United Country with enough infrastructure that water can be shipped from all over to meet the needs to balance the shortfall of an area for now. If something were to happen all over, the problem could be much greater. I'm not sure if portable filters will work in this situation, reverse osmosis, distillation or not, and I would love some feedback and opinions.
I had a surgery 8 years ago which rendered my stomach useless when the Vegas Nerve was cut. Since then, I have problems when I drink water. I drink Lactaid milk, Pina Colada Sobee, and sometimes Mountain Dew instead. I went at one point over 5 years without water, so I know you can live without drinking it considering most drinks have filtered water in them. It's the cooking and showers that pose the greatest risk to our health
Having a backup plan is imperative for both municipalities and individuals. Having a water well at home for rural properties is nice. I suppose those of you who do can offer water to your neighbors, and start bottling for the grocery store if this goes on too long. If the power goes out, an electric water well will stop working, unless you have solar. My best recommendation is for a wind powered water pump.
