If you enjoy browsing through survival and disaster management books, it is a given that you are looking for books, where you can get tips and techniques on proper water management, conservation, and how to have drinking water, ready at hand in situations of survival, camping, traveling, and even in your house.
This book is going to give you lots of commonsense ways and methods, some modern, some traditional, and technical, so that you can get to know how man has managed to survive in areas where there is a lack of water, the water has been contaminated, or the water sources are drying up, and he has to make do with the amount he has at hand.
In many parts of the world, it is very easy for you to get access to potable water, because of the administration supplying you clean, filtered, and chlorine water regularly, through your pipes and through your taps, possibly 24/7.
But for others in remote areas, where water sources may still be underground wells, which are tapping into underground rivers, nearby freshwater streams and other natural sources of water are the only way in which they can get water to drink and to survive, having large amounts of water ready at hand, to use, and even to waste is still a pipe dream, no pun intended.
And even more so, when the streets are waterlogged in a flood, or the rains have been relentless.
I have been to many parts of the world, where my hosts told me – just do not drink straight from the taps will you, and you are going to be all right.
