Water Contamination and Failure in LA 2013

2013 2013 2013 <div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">Our little 'ville is having some water issues. A pipe or something broke. First the water was deemed unsafe to drink and we had a 'boil watch' then it went out entirely. Of course by the nature of things this had to happen during a transition. In our normal established setup this would not be an issue. When settles we have a bunch of<a href="http://www.campingsurvival.com/water-storage.html"> water jugs</a> full and the <a href="http://www.directive21.com/products/big-berkey-water-filters/">Big Berkey</a> to filter more water. We had a couple filters on hand but none you would really want to filter a household's worth of water for a week in. <br /><br />Thankfully the water did come back on though it's still under the boil watch and pretty nasty. Also we were able to get some additional jugs and a few gallons of water to deal with tomorrow and probably the next day. After that we can purify and stash it in the jugs. For tomorrow at work I've got a <a href="http://www.directive21.com/products/sport-berkey-water-bottle/">Berkey Sports Bottle</a> to keep me safe as well as hydrated at work.&nbsp; <br /><br />This whole thing has me wanting to purchase a <a href="http://www.titanreadywater.com/Hydrant-Water-Storage-System-with-2-55gal-Barrels_p_42.html">Hydrant Water Storage System from Titan Ready Water</a> so we can keep a month's worth of water on hand in an easy to handle setup. <br /><br />For this short period we are probably just going to eat food that does not require cooking on disposable dishes.<br /><br />Immediate lessons:<br />Have multiple methods of <a href="http://www.directive21.com/">water filtration</a> on hand at all times (We did this)<br />When possible have at least a few day's worth of water on hand. More is better. (We normally do.)<br />Have foods that can be eated without much prep/ water. (We have some food here.)<br />Have disposable plates/ bowls// dishes to save on water/ effort for short term issues.<br /><br />Will talk more about this fun little <strike>disaster</strike> experiment later. </div><div class="blogger-post-footer"><script type="text/javascript"><!--<br>google_ad_client = "pub-4867339654300878";<br>/* 728x90, created 8/28/08 */<br>google_ad_slot = "3354001287";<br>google_ad_width = 728;<br>google_ad_height = 90;<br>//--><br></script><br><script type="text/javascript"<br>src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"><br></script></div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on">Our little 'ville is having some water issues.
