Thursday Talks: Ales & Ideas

Water Supply and Purification for Emergencies

Moderator: Shaun Martin – Senior Project Manager CCC MERTS facility

Synopsis: A reliable drinking water source for your family is critical in any disaster. Shaun Martin will demonstrate several methods of collecting, storing, and converting seemingly unusable water into clean, lifesaving, and drinkable water, with a focus on techniques and sources specific to our community. Although boiling water has its place, what if the water comes out of a duck pond? What about sea water? We’ve all heard of E (Escerichia) Coli, along with Giardia Lamblia and Salmonella – all bacteria commonly found in familiar water sources. Audience members will learn several methods to remove these contaminants and others, ensuring loved ones will always have water during an emergency.

Ales & Ideas is brought to you on the first Thursday of each month by Clatsop Community College. Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6pm. Food & beverages are available through the Taproom. All ages are welcome and never a cover.

WHERE: Lovell Showroom, 14th & Duane Street Astoria, Oregon 97103 Map
