Perfect example of why to have water on hand

Columbia Water Company issues 'do not consume' order

http://lancasteronline.com/article/local...order.html

Quote:Customers are being advised to not use water for drinking, cooking, food preparation, oral hygiene or pets until further notice.

The water company expects the problem to be resolved within 3 to 5 days.

This could happen anywhere at any time, completely unrelated to a weather event. I wonder how many people actually have water on hand.

Either have your water on hand or have a good filtration system, that is easy to use, readily available.

I try to keep around 10 gallons on hand and there is usually a case or two of bottled drinking water here.

Yep, we've had that sort of notice out here within the last two years.

When we lived in VA Beach, my wife was having a lot of stomach problems, and getting sick. She was drinking a lot of water thinking she would flush it from her system, but it kept getting worse and the doctors were baffled.

One day at work, I had a thought and told her to stop drinking the water and only drink bottled water. She started getting better. A couple days later, we got a notice from the apartment building management--stop drinking the water, there was a break in the water lines was contaminating the drinking water.
