Disaster Preparation

  1. Emergency Disinfection of Water (
      "When the home water supply is interrupted by natural or other forms of disaster, you can obtain limited amounts of water by draining your hot water tank or melting ice cubes. In most cases, well water is the preferred source of drinking water. If it is not available and river or lake water must be used, avoid sources containing floating material and water with a dark color or an odor."

      Editor's Note: Flood water gains dangerous chemicals that will not be removed by boiling or adding chemicals such as iodine. Distillation of the water may be the only method for making it safer. Likewise, water from Lake Pontchartrain was also made undrinkable. 9-05
