Dr. Vince Hill is the Chief of the Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch of the CDC. In this episode, I got to pick his brain about backcountry drinking water. If you’ve ever spent a night in the backcountry, you’ve probably had to deal with water filtration or purification. We covered three main topics in this episode: the basics of contaminated water, what causes the contamination, and how we can fix it to make water drinkable.
