Coklat Air (translated: “brown water”)

C. & P. S.

During this past month we have had very heavy rains, and it has done a number on the well from where we get our water. Previously the water was clear, but after the heavy rains, it has turned brown.

We bathe, wash dishes, and drink this water too (we put it through our filter prior to drinking).  It sure makes a lot more work for us, because the filters have to be cleaned more frequently now.

In the coming days we’ll check into getting connected to city water. City water isn’t safe to drink, but maybe it’s a little less muddy. We go through a lot of detergent to wash our clothes now, and after washing dishes in that muddy water, it makes us a little hesitant to use them!
