  • Can't you go the gas station and get a bottled water? Everyone needs at least water to survive.

  • Contaminated with what? Go to the store and buy something. Our walmart is open 24 hours a day. We have gas stations, I love a giant vessel of refreshment on occaision.

  • Not much you can do is there? I'd go to the store and if I couldn't do that either I guess I'd swallow my spit. What are your options?

  • Walk to the store and grab a water bottle.

  • If I couldn't go to the store I would get water from fruits or vegetables.

  • Maybe make some coffee. The heat should kill any bacteria in the water.

  • In many areas with contaminated water you can get free bottled water from the health and wellness centers. The human body is not to go without water. . . for me there is always water. . . I have a bad reaction to the city water where I am, but I have a great filtration pitcher and drink water like it is going out of style! GL. . .

  • the water issue, 35 cities were tested, and 31 came back positive with hexavalent chromium in it. and my city is on the list of positive cities. unfortunately I don't have a car. No coffee maker, and right now, no money for a bottled water. and i live in a bad neighborhood, so hubby would be walking if we had the money for it right this second. am I screwed or what? Hubby is making koolaid, and I'm hoping that it doesn't make me sick.

  • My best suggestion is go to the store, and next time not let your supply of liquids run out. I'd rather run out of food than liquids any day.
