Our word "spring" comes from the Old English word springan, which means to burst forth or jump up. Maybe this is why the same word is used for the season where new plant growth is erupting everywhere – and the word is also used for the water source where water is squirting up out of the ground. Despite the abundance of water throughout the spring season, clean water can sometimes be difficult to find. Since the human body cannot last more than a few days without hydration, it's vital to know how to locate different sources of water. Fortunately there are some different ways to collect safe drinking water from the landscape. Check out these three options for water gathering options for the spring season.
