Does your community have a public bottle filling station that offers filtered water? Is that water also treated with a sanitizer such as ozone or UV? How do you feel about sanitizers such as chlorine, ozone and UV. Which one do you want in your drinking water?
Bleach can be used to turn most water into potable water in just a few minutes. I forget the exact ratio of bleach:water, but the end result is that a gallon of bleach can turn gallons upon gallons of water potable.
The only problem with it is that the bleach is still in the water a little bit (it mostly dissolves) and that over time with repeated exposure it can cause damage to your body.
Beyond that, the method has undoubtedly saved thousands of lives.
As for the other methods? I don't know. I'm less worried about clean water than I am about the NDAA and PATRIOT act.
I'm trying to learn how to distill my own water - in a pinch this could probably save a few lives - but I'm sure it would be very expensive on a small scale.

I can't imagine how anyone can drink 2 gallons of Coke per DAY! But this woman also had a very poor diet nutrition-wise and was a heavy smoker, so it probably just wasn't the soda alone that caused her death. I just...
