I'll following you... Since I live out here in the middle of nowhere Idaho and live off a well the water is pure. Yeah even in the spring of the year the water looks muddy but no problem.
But as for going to the city and drinking water neither Mom or I can touch city water. The content of chlorine and fluoride makes us sick. So 99% of the time we will be packing our own water.
Funny part everyone always tells you not to drink out creeks and stream you might get beaver fever. Well I can drink from just about any stream of creek in Idaho but can't drink that nasty stuff called city water. Like in Riggins, ID the city water stinks of clorine...
Yes I have and will drink water from the stream behind me... This is the irrigation dam that feed our property...
