The idea of drinking water with worms in it certainly isn’t appealing. But residents of a small Oklahoma town have recently been advised not to drink the water or use it for cooking for that very reason…

However there is one prep item, that if you had it, would ensure your avoidance of this type of contamination…

 
Despite the fact that town officials have said there are no adverse health effects with the red ‘blood’ worms which had infested the towns water supply, residents of the Oklahoma town Colcord, near the Arkansas border, are being asked to avoid drinking tap water until the local utility is sure that it has gotten rid of tiny red worms that got into the water system.

The worms range in size from 1/2 to 1 inch, and apparently the chlorine in the town’s water supply won’t kill them. Even pure bleach won’t kill them… “You can take the worms and put them in a straight cup of bleach and leave them in there for about four hours, and they still won’t die,” said the Colcord water commissioner.

The reason for this article is to use this example as another good reason to have yourself a quality drinking water filter. You never know what might enter your municipal water supply.

Imagine how bad it could get during a SHTF event, and/or when you might have to get your own water from a stream or lake…

Safe drinking water should be one of your top priorities when you’re evaluating your preps.

Clean fresh water is, and always will be a precious resource. Get yourself a decent water filter that fits your budget.

It just makes sense…
