Backpacking and Camping Water Filters

Water borne outbreaks occur in back country when camping or backpacking as well as in the city and rural environments. The most common reason for outbreaks is improperly treated water. Water from backcountry sources is surface water. While it is true that most people who become sick from surface water do not die, water borne diseases produce painful symptoms.

It will be an unforgettable experience for guests and/ or operators if they suddenly become ill with vomiting and/or diarrhea during a camping or backpacking  trip. Water borne pathogens come from many sources besides human fecal contamination. Deer, elk, sheep, beaver, muskrats and cattle may carry many of the waterborne disease causing agents. Water borne pathogens may also come from sources, such as discharges from wastewater treatment plants, septic systems, chemical toilets, or runoff after storms from ranch lands and town sites.

Without question, untreated surface water constitutes a health risk, and backcountry operators might incur liability if their clients become ill on a trip. Consequently, when camping or backpacking you must properly treat water for drinking, cooking, or other uses where it may be consumed.   Read the Full Article on  Backpacking and Camping Water Filters and backcountry camping.
