    5 Ways to Start Storing Water

    Establishing emergency water storage

    Having a store of clean drinking water is one of the most important and crucial components of resiliency building and emergency preparedness.  It has been said many times that a person can live for three weeks without food but only three days without water.  There are many emergency situations and events that can cause your everyday water supply to become unavailable or undrinkable.  The unexpected natural disaster or perfect storm will typically wreak havoc on the powergrid. When widespread power outages occur, water may not flow from the tap, or treatment plants may not be working to properly treat and deliver safe water. It is events like these that we all must prepare for.  Here we explore ways to ensure you are prepared to meet these types of situations without much effort or concern.

    Water Storage: An Example of Resiliency Building

    [Note: This article has been contributed by Joey Casas, longtime reader at ChrisMartenson.com and fellow resiliency builder.]

    On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, the headline “Magnitude 7.0 earthquake shakes Haiti” hit the news. The images of the devastation from this single event (and the aftershocks) were sobering, in the least, and the reccurring theme that impacted me most was the masses of Haitians who were desperate for water.

    The basic ingredient of life was being sought after and fought over. Access to clean potable water was now a matter of life and death for so many. 

    One particular Sunday paper headline and photo shook me for days. I kept this article taped up in my basement as a reminder of why it’s so important to have emergency water available. With it in mind, I decided to design a self-contained system that would allow me to provide water to my family for a minimum of 5 days and many more in a pinch.

    Rainwater Harvesting

    Understanding how to capture and store rainwater

    Water is essential to life, for we cannot exist without it. We are running short of fresh, clean water in many parts of the USA. That is also the case in many other countries. Those who live in the northeastern quadrant of the lower 48 states are generally in good shape for now, water-wise, though there may be local issues with clean water in places. But as you travel west of the Mississippi, average annual rainfall drops off sharply, particularly in the desert southwest, which includes portions of the Chihuahua, Sonora, and Mohave Deserts.

    The situation is particularly foreboding in the Colorado River Basin. There are more demands for the water than the river can reliably supply. Las Vegas is vulnerable to a water emergency, as are Phoenix and Tucson. Thirsty Los Angeles gets drinking water from far away Northern California via the California Aqueduct. As the podcast from a few weeks ago highlighted, water management and access is becoming an ever-increasing concern for many parts of the country.
