Survival Water Collection Tips

When you are trying to survive in the wild, one of the most important skills you need to have is the ability to collect water. Just because you might find a stream or a lake doesn’t mean you can just drink the water, as it could be contaminated and need to be boiled first. In a good situation, you will have a fire and containers so you can get it boiled and into a drinkable state. However, that’s not always the case. The following are some simple things you can do to start collecting water in the wild.

First, you need to remember that you want to get clean water that you can drink right away. Rainwater is the best option, so if it is going to rain in your area, put out any containers – bowls, bottles, and the like – to collect the rainwater. If you have a piece of plastic, a poncho, or a tarp, you can also use that to collect the water. Dig a depression, place the plastic over it, and then push part of the plastic into the depression. Then you can hold it in place with some rocks. The water will collect in the depression.

In the early morning, you can take a clean cloth, such as a towel, and drag it lightly over the grass. This will collect the dew. You can then wring the towel out into a bowl or other type of container. Do this until you have collected a substantial amount of water. Make sure you are up nice and early to get the dew before the sun dries it up though.

All the tips we’ve discussed seem easy, and they are for the most part. However, that doesn’t mean that you will remember how to do them unless you take the time to practice. This will give you a better idea of how much water you can collect in a day in your area.
