Water is the lifeblood of everything on the planet, and it will be so for your retreat as well. When the lights go out, for whatever reason, you’ll need to have that water source available and ready for food production, and a purified source for domestic use. Almost all retreats will have some source of primary water, normally a drilled well with a fairly acceptable flow rate, some may have a community water system that is localized with a few square miles due to the deep overall well depths.
The ultimate and most coveted water source to a Prepper family is the year round, high flowing spring with hydro-power in place and gravity fed to both the house and garden/animal areas. There are very few of these available that are correctly placed on a property in the American Redoubt. Some properties will have a simple gravity fed spring system that is not capable of hydro-power, but feeds the home, this is more than acceptable. Next, a small stream or creek with water rights can be used for both non-potable and potable applications, after a purification process of course. Last but not least, is the spring fed pond that hopefully produces enough daily flow to be used as a back-up source.
