Stock up on waterless hand cleaners & handy-wipes.  You'll not want to wash your hands with precious water after each trip to the bathroom.  

I'm an expert on water & wastewater treatment, and I live off of a small lake, so I have a good supply of very common water-treatment chemicals to treat raw lake-water to potable standards.  The little hand-filters are nice, but I can treat hundreds of gallons per day if I have to. 

I stock commercial ferric chloride solution as a coagulant, a few cationic polymers as flocculants, and household bleach.  Treatment works in any large container (5 gal pail or larger).  Add enough ferric while mixing to generate pin-floc, then hit it with a small amount of polymer, mix and let settle.  All the tadpoles, leaves & stuff will settle out, leaving very clear water at the top.  This is how your municipal treatment plants do it.

I also have some filter sand and can run the clarified water through that if I need to, but for most purposes, this decant method will make very high quality water without need for filtration.  A bit of bleach (sodium hypochlorite) adds chlorine residual & disinfects.

Become as self-sufficient and as independent as possible.  Be able to pump water from your own well on your own land.  Install a photovaic electricity generating system so you can harvest electricity from the sun.  If you have a garden, increase its size and effectiveness.  Have fruit and nut trees on your property.  Having your own septic system keeps you from being at the mercy of a municipality.  All of these and more are things I have done.  Obviously it's best not to live in a large city. 

Stock up on food, drinkable water, guns, basic hand tools, and ammunition.

Self reliance must address these areas:

1.  Protection.  Without security you may not be able to keep the rest of these.
2.  Strong shelter.
3.  Water, replenishable water.
4.  Food
5.  Energy
6.  Medicine
7.  Communications.
