Topic - What Plans Have You Made for Water
Posted: June 10 2006 at 4:35pm By Cygnet
I'm on a well -- it's shared with 8 families & it's got a 5,000 gallon holding tank. It's also too deep to power with a generator, so if the power goes off, I'm up a creek once the water's used up. And I'd be hauling it by hand from the tank as it doesn't gravity feed. I also have a 250 gallon holding tank I'm putting in on my property because I'm sick of having no water when the well goes out. (See above about not gravity feeding.)

If TSHTF, however, I'm headed for my father's cabin in N. AZ, though, which has an ample natural supply of water. I couldn't live out here long term if we had a major pandemic and civilization fell apart. Water WOULD be an issue, and food would be a bigger issue. (I could probably divert enough rainwater from the roof to keep from dying of dehydration -- but I certainly wouldn't get enough to grow anything with.)
