Still, pollutants and chemicals in the water are very hard to get out, and may pose an illness problem. In general, find a naturally occurring stream or river that is fast moving and cold. Avoid warm, stagnant water sources. Avoid run off water or neighborhood retention ponds. These can be chocked full of fertilizers from neighborhood lawns. Filtering is the act of straining impurities from the water. Whether micro-organisms like bacteria and protozoa or substances like silt and debris, a good filter will get rid of most nasties that can come your way. Again borrowing from backpacking gear, many hand held filters are available to help filter your water that are designed with dependability, long life, and weight/packability in mind. MSR is one manufacturer of such gear.
