Water4Patriots Sympathizes with Farmers Who Feel Fish Are Favored Over Them

Water that farmers and water district officials believe is needed in drought-stricken sections of California is being withheld in order to protect a species of smelt. Water4Patriots sympathizes with those who need the water and suggests people learn how to purify water of contaminants.

According to a recent Associated Press story, California farmers and water district officials are upset that they are being denied much needed water due to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife plan to safeguard a threatened three-inch Delta smelt.

The farmers and water district officials believe they need water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta sent south to them in the Central Valley. The endangered smelt only lives in the delta, which is the largest estuary on the West Coast and which supplies much of California with drinking water and irrigates millions of farmland acres.

With water shortages in the West and Southwest, and with water contaminations occurring periodically in various parts of the country, less and less clean drinking water is available. Water4Patriots officials including Allen Baler believe it becomes increasingly important to have a way to purify water from contaminants. The LifeStraw personal water filter accomplishes just that.

It’s the world’s most advanced water filter, removing 99.999 percent of waterborne bacteria and parasites, and providing the user with crystal-clear, life-giving water when no clean drinking water is available.

LifeStraw Is Lightweight and Needs No Batteries

This compact device, which can be carried anywhere, weighs only two ounces. It contains no chemicals and no moving parts, and requires no electricity or batteries.

In just one month after being made available to the public this spring, sales of the LifeStraw reached 13,259. Together, those LifeStraws have the potential of turning 3.5 million gallons of contaminated water into pure drinking water.

Pores within tubes inside the straw allow water to pass but prevent contaminants larger than 0.2 microns from flowing through. The LifeStraw filters up to 1,000 liters of contaminated water without iodine, chlorine or other chemicals.

First introduced in 2005, the LifeStraw was field tested by approximately 4.5 million people and used around the world under extreme conditions for humanitarian relief. Now available in the U.S., it has met EPA standards for water filtration and was a Time magazine invention of the year winner.

“In addition to providing clean drinking water no matter where one is, the LifeStraw gives peace of mind,” said Allen Baler, Partner at 4Patriots, which provides products that help people become more self-reliant and independent. “When a crisis occurs, people will have clean drinking water, even if all the surrounding water is contaminated. With the LifeStraw, people can be prepared no matter what happens.”

Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help people become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
