Vancouver, BC, Canada CGK 2018 Ltd EyeSight
We used to drink it right from the lake, just filtering through a 30 micron filter for any larger particles. Lake is very clean, large, 45 miles long, and 1000 ft deep in the middle (deep canyon lake). No such thing here as beaver fever or other parasites, etc, here. It is on the water expansion list for Vancouver sometime in the future when it will be needed. You can see 50 or 60 ft in the water, it is so clear. Having said that, we now bring in big water jugs for drinking fresh water. Anything boiled is OK, though. BTW, in winter, we catch trout right off the dock, nice large sea run cutthroat that follow the salmon runs up in the fall. They go back to the ocean in the spring.Do you have a water purifier for the lake water to make it safe to drink?
Yeah, hard for guests to remember the "if it's yellow, let it mellow" rule to avoid unnecessary well pump cycles. I don't even try for the "pee on a tree, s#*t in the pit" rule.
Lake is normally cold, but we are at the top end (north) of a bay, and in summer the prevailing south winds bring all the warm surface waters up here. It can reach 80F sometimes here at our dock. Meanwhile at the south end of the lake it would be only 55F with all the up welling. We have quite the micro climates here.
