  If you need to find water outside your home, you can use these sources but be sure to purify the water by:

     Boiling

     Disinfection (household liquid bleach: 16 drops/gal. of water, stir & let stand 30 min.)

     Distillation (boil 2 pot water & collect the vapor by tying a cup to the upside down pot lid - the cup shouldn't dangle in the water--it will condense back to water in the cup)

 Sources:

         Rainwater

         Streams, rivers & other moving bodies of water

         Ponds & lakes

         Natural Springs

 

How to Store Water 

Store your water in thoroughly washed plastic, glass, fiberglass or enamel-lined metal containers. Never use a container that has held toxic substances.
