When using a camping water filter, like MSR, Katdyne or others, you should start with very clear water. Any large chunks could make treatment very hard and could jam your mechanical mechanism. Your filter can even treat water from very impure sources. Why even out of waste water plants. But it’s not advised.
For example, last Saturday, a human calf and a foot were found at the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant, in Carson, CA. Raw sewage is treated there and sent out to the ocean or used as recycled water. Authorities commented: “Anything coming into this plant comes in through a 72-inch line. It goes through a centrifugal pump, so you can imagine what kind of damage to a person’s body would happen going through a centrifugal pump,”
Investigators believe the victim was likely put into the system through a manhole or sewer street cover. Police also said there is an extra limb missing they haven’t located. It could turn up in another sanitation facility.
So there you have it. Drink up!!
