I was camping up in Chilliwack once by myself for three days during winter break for a solo survival course. Although the staff would provide us with water when we needed it, I didn't feel inclined to do so. Unfortunately, I ran out of my personal water supply on my second day in and I didn't have a fire to boil the stream water. Although it was unsanitary, I took a huge gulp of the stream water and continued onto the third day. I am grateful for the cleanest water source in the world since I luckily didn't get sick.
