( Natural News ) You don’t want to run out of water in a post-SHTF world, especially if you are dealing with a long-term scenario. But even preppers can’t prepare for everything, so stock up on enough water for your family before SHTF.
You should also have a backup plan in case you run out of water, so learn how to use ponds as an emergency water source. (h/t to TheSurvivalMom.com )
Ponds are common in the U.S. and they often form due to periodic flooding in river basins. They are also an important part of local ecosystems. A pond’s ability to sustain wildlife extends to humans, especially if you know how to use ponds as an emergency water source.
If you own a man-made pond in your backyard, you can make your property more beautiful while also having access to an alternative water source.
A natural pond is similar to a lake since both are open bodies of fresh water in the ground . However, a pond is usually smaller and shallower than a lake.
Since ponds are shallower than lakes, the former often have plants growing on the bottom from one side to the other. Most ponds are less than six or seven feet deep. Is it safe to use a pond as a water source?
Ponds are the anchor of a local ecosystem and they can sustain aquatic plants, fish, birds, insects and other wildlife. When SHTF, it’s safe to use ponds as an emergency water source .
Regardless if your pond is natural or man-made, it can contain more water in a small area than you could store in a garage or backyard shed. To illustrate, a pond that is two feet deep and measures 15 feet by 15 feet contains at least 450 gallons of water or the equivalent […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
