    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do you have any suggestions for Detroiter's besides begging the government?

    I've seen lots of threads and talk about begging someone else to fix the problem.

    Are there any solutions that do not include begging?

    Any "roll up your sleeves" and get to work digging a well solutions?

    :heart:

    Actually i do, but i don't know how feasible they might be, as i've never done them myself.

    But i believe digging wells brings water ... but i don't know how hard that is to do.

    Even no matter how hard it might be, if one is thirsty enough, i'm sure they'll get to digging.

    Brother asmith161718 mentioned an atmospheric water generator.

    It's probably a good time to think about it, considering folk are getting their water turned off.

    Better to kinda think about it ahead of time, if one can.

    If you own the lake, the water is yours ... then no ... i don't imagine it will be a problem.

    But if someone else owns that water ... if your name aint on the deed ... you problee can't do what you want with it.

    That's like saying, because i live next door to you, and you have a car ... i can drive it when i want.

    Weird.

    The problem is getting rid of the contamination in the water. That is expensive too

    Everything costs something ... unless you're trying to get stuff at no cost ... it's gonna cost.

    I've seen on those survivor programs, that there are relatively easy ways to sterilize one's water.

    It's probably not the preferred way to do. I'm sure we'd all like to continue getting fresh clean drinking water piped straight into our house ... but the writing is on the wall ... and some are already experiencing the fact that if they turn you off ... if you can't pay your bill ... you'd be ahead of the game if you know how to do some of these things so you and your Family can survive.

    But survival costs too ... so ... well ... i guess living just costs too much.
