    Raw Water?

    Don't seem like a good idea to me.

    Dysentery anyone? No? Well how about some Cholera instead?

    Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say water is filtered for a reason and warn untreated water may contain bacteria, viruses and parasites no matter how clean it looks. "If you're not filtering it, if you're not disinfecting it then you are creating a risk for yourself or anybody you give the water to of diseases and other illnesses that can come from the water," said Vincent Hill, chief of the CDC Waterborne Disease Prevention branch.
    And the price! $30 a gallon?

    Insane!

    I have a well as do 85% of the people in my community (there is no government sponsored water available). So, I would think it would depend on where the water originated.

    As for the $30.00 a gallon, yes that is excessive and maybe there should be a law putting a price cap on this.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Someone is cashing in on the gullibility of the masses. A well has a natural filter depending the on the depth, location, and amount of sediment it filters through, but surface water is susceptible to what is upstream. I say let darwin run its' course.
    Nobody is holding a gun to your head. If you don't like what I post, ignore me. I'll post what I want, when I want, and where I want, regardless of how you or anyone else feels about it.

    Wonder how many of the purchasers are Bernie supporters.

    Peace river water for sale cheap @5$ a gallon. The orange groves upstream give the water...an interesting quality one must simply taste to appreciate.

    You cover shipping, paypal or money orders preferred. Free milk jug with every gallon purchase, Tuesday special!

    How can this be legal? It certainly isn't moral. What idiot would think this is okay?

    I wouldn't think it was downhill from a septic tank. Dirt filters a good bit and, unless you are dumping raw sewage near the well, it should be safe.

    When I was younger and Colorado wasn't overrun with too many people I used to drink directly from mountain springs and rivers. Cold and good! I would bet that in the future we'll develop filters that remove only the "bad" stuff while leaving the healthy minerals intact. To manufacture high end pharmaceuticals we filtered and processed water so pure that it was actually toxic to drink. LEPW (low endotoxin purified water.)

    Not quite that simple, but generally it is safe if the well is tested to be safe periodically. The depth of the well matters a lot, but the water doesn't stop at the edge of one's property line so it is not unheard of for people's wells to be contaminated by others. It is why you can kiss your life good bye if you ever are responsible for cross contaminating fresh water wells by hitting a saline pocket while drilling. The government will destroy you.
