    Boil Water Alert: How Prepared Were Lower Mainland Members

    So how many PERB members in the lower mainland were prepared and had a stock pile of water around?

    A few years back, there was an article about the quality of bottled water and some brands were identified as having small amounts of contamination. I've had bottled water that I had stored for a while and I notice there was what looked like string like particles growing in the water.

    you gotta keep bottled water in a cool, dry place and away from light. Especially if it is mineral water from a natural source as opposed to filtered / treated water, there are still some micro-organisms present in bottled water that can bloom when exposed to higher temperatures and light over time.

    I like the little story on global the other night.....they were outside costco and their entire supply of bottle water sold out in 13 minutes.....as someone leaving the store said, it would be interesting to see what happened if a full blown tsunami hit and it wasn't just water that people needed

    Fucking pathetic really that with all the reports, and at times hype, about things like y2k, avian flu, hurricane katrina, etc. and how people should be prepared with basic things LIKE THREE DAYS worth of water nobody pays attention. This just adds to my resolve that if/when something bad were to hit I'm feel less then sympathetic to help those who couldn't be bothered to help themselves ahead of time.

    Fuck em, let the shit hit the fan and I'll be snug as a well armed bug in a rug. Food, water (both an in house filtering and ultraviolet purification system as well as bottled water if the muni supply runs out or I have to leave my little sanctuary), alternative power supply (kohler generator to be installed next spring), metal roller shutters, high security locks and doors, video security system and of course like every Albertan one or three guns inside. So yes please, by all means bring it on!

    When light hits water bacteria will grow.
