I do run low on water , depending on the time of the year. .
Let all boil for 15 minutes to a half hour.. Makes for a sweet tasting water.
Water can make you very sick. And take you out of the game pretty fast. Always be careful about your water.
In a hard core situation if the water looks scummy etc, it can be okay to drink by following the rules. It is your own judgment call, common sense is always a must. Experience in the wild is earned while learning and doing.
