Water Scavenger

How to Get Drinking Water in the Wilderness

1) Find a Flowing Water Source

if available, find a river or creek, or any flowing water.

2) Filter the Water Through Cloth

use a bandana, or a tightly woven shirt to scoop water from the source. Position the water-filled cloth over the container that you are filling up.

3) Start a Fire

boiling the water will disinfect it, and lessen the chance of getting you sick.

4) Rolling Boil

wait for the water to become a rolling boil. This will take about five minutes, but you should leave it boiling for ten minutes.

5) Container

pour the water into a desireable container to drink from.

6) Shake

shake the water up while in the cointainer to add oxygen back into the water.
