MD, thanks for all you do on this site, as you’ve made it a very valuable one, IMHO. I have a question for the Pack, related to water. I’ve been increasing our water storage. We live in a small town & depend on city water. If we lost that, our primary resupply would be rain water. Our area rec’s about 40 inches of rain/year.
I’m curious about what types of water resupply systems (rain, well, creek, lake, etc) other Pack members depend on, & if some pack members have advice for me. We’re in the process of setting up a couple rain barrels. I have some tarps I could use to increase rain catchment in an emergency. We have 3-4 pools & a hot tub within a 2 block radius.
M.D. Replies : Red, I have three farm ponds within a mile of my place. I also have over 100 gallons of tap water stored in two 55 gallon water storage barrels and a 200 gallon rain water catchment and collection system + a 55 gallon rain barrel that catches rain water off the roof of my chicken coop to keep my chickens hydrated.
My two 100 gallon water tanks came from www.prepperwaterstorage.com be sure and take a look at what they have to offer.
