Ponds here are lower than I’ve ever seen; many are dry. Creeks have only a few stagnant holes left. Wells in the creek basin would be the only back-up if rural water shut off.

I have some pump jacks, leathers and such I stashed back in Y2K days.

Primitive wins a lot of country battles.

I'm within (unhappy to do it) walking distance of a lake, water table is high here, and the creeks are running. I've also got rain-water collection that is normally used for the garden.

Primitive works, if it filters well. Boiling also works, after the big chunks are out.

You are correct that country boys can survive.
