In areas subject to fallout, about 99% of the radioactivity in water could be removed BY filtering the water through at least 8 inches of soil taken from 8 inches "Below" the surface. That soil has not been leached of the "clay" particles in the soil "needed to attract the radioactivity" in the water. SANDY soil will not work as a filter because it lacks the necessary soil "clay". Most homes and flowerbeds have enough clay in the soil to work as a filter. Kids play clay does NOT work at all. It has to be soil clay
Get yourself a 5-gallon can, trashcan, bucket, wastebasket, washtub, container. With a
hammer and a nail not as big as pencil, punch about "one" dozen holes in
the bottom of the can, punch the holes from the bottom up into the can. Make the holes
near the center, in a ring, or circle. Wad up some coat hangers, about a dozen. Put a
couple of washcloths in the bucket bottom and the coat hangers on top of them. OR
you can just use a bunch of silverware, enough for 6 or 8 people. Knives, forks, spoons.
You are creating a void space. Then a bath towel with the ends hanging out over the sides
of the bucket.
If you do not get the radiation "OUT" of water, you are killing your insidesand your brain won't know it for two weeks. You are dead.
Then you have to kill the germs in the filtered water, BEFORE you drink it. What is best is to prepare, like I told you on other flyers.
So that you do not have to do all this work, see my

you are thirsty.
