Our modern water utility infrastructure is a marvel of engineering with its inter-connected systems of electricity, communications, transportation, pipes, pumps, reservoirs and chemicals — all of which, along with operating and maintenance personnel are necessary to keep municipal water flowing. This interconnected dependence makes delivering vast quantities of safe water possible, but that same complexity of inter-linked systems means that a major breakdown in one area can cascade into a long-term breakdown of water delivery.
For true water preparedness you must recognize the seriousness of the issue; Begin now — and never stop — improving your water preparations. You must store enough water to keep you going, be able to find replacement water, and have multiple reliable ways of purifying it. On this account (making water safe) you’re not being told the whole story about making contaminated water safe to use. It’s not really hard to do, but it is more complex than the manufactures and marketers of equipment and chemicals want you to believe.
Now is the time to come to grips with the reality of what it really takes to become your own supplier of safe water. Waiting until the need is at hand is not a survivable option for you or the people around you.
WATER Part-3 drills into the details and principles on three of the five basic methods used to make contaminated water safe in an emergency. Some of the critical area covered will be:
• When would you choose to use each of the three different methods
• What is covered by the “CHUS” methods of sanitizing water
• Which one of the three will take care of everything
To have safe water, it is vital to understand:
> Safety considerations
> The true reliability of each one of the three
> What are the weak points and failings of the “CHUS” methods
> When must you use something other than just the “CHUS” methods
> Where do each of these fit in the five or more stages needed for treating highly-contaminated water
