Water Procurement

water procurement

After building a shelter, water is your most urgent need in a wilderness survival situation. You cannot go long without it, especially in areas with high temperatures and low humidity where water is lost rapidly through perspiration. Even in cooler climates, you need two liters of water every day to maintain efficiency.  When considering where to build a shelter, you should be considering the availability of an adequate water supply.

Learn how to:

  • locate water sources
  • use trees and plants to access water
  • distill saltwater
  • use the earth itself to find water
  • purify water naturally
  • insure your water is safe to drink
  • extract salt from different environments
