This is a list of likely water contaminants, by the US EPA.

Pretty much applies to water supplies in the bush or, urban, semi urban areas here.

The list comprises of organic, heavy metals, chemicals/poisons both natural and man made.

While water steralisation techniques can be used for most organic problems, some contaminants maybe removed by distilling the water.

Not a good solution if on foot, but there it is.

Unless you know the source, flow, run off of drinking water in the bush, up stream or immediate area, there will always be a risk.
