    Our pond sat on top of a small hill,so in the summer we would put the garden below the pond and run a syphon hose from pond to garden. We hauled water in big water cans from town,and poured it into smaller more manageable containers. We had 5 gallon buckets of water in the bathroom to flush the stool,and a rain barrel outside we used for bathing and laundry. It wasn't really bad when your equipped for it,but turning on a faucet is a whole lot easier lol. Good times.

    As a small child I lived in a house with no running water. We hade the haul water in buckets from a spring. As a teen I often drank collected rain water. If you have a well you know to fill the bath tub if the power could go out. No electricity no running water. The problem is that we have turned over responsibility for everything to the gov. We are no longer able to care for and feed are selves. Every house should have 1 a gallon of water per person per day to cover two weeks. Grow a garden. Can your own food. Have a stock pile. Take responsibility.

    I have never had my water shut off. Or any other utility. My wife and I worked hard and supported our family. It was hard work.

    Billions sent to elsewhere by corrupt party and they still vote for the same failure. Read the last stimulus bill! Suckers are born every election cycle. Tell your new wonderful customized government.

    Rather than fighting build you're own water treatment system... You got full community why you still want to fight rather than build your own? I can understand you want equality, but can't you see they want you to struggle for equality of water...
