Potable water no longer a dream for Namaygoosisgagun First Nation
NAMAYGOOSISGAGUN— For the very first time in 40 years, residents of Collins Lake are able to drink water from their own lake thanks to the determination of the citizens and leadership of Namaygoosisgagun, technology of Sawyer Products and the support of the Dreamcatcher Fund.
Stevie Salas, a world-renowned guitarist and producer of music, film, and television, and award-winning film and television producer Christina Fon both joined Darrel Larson, International Director of Sawyer Products, to provide the gift of clean drinking water to Namaygoosisgagun First Nation, a small, remote access Anishinabek First Nation located in Northwestern Ontario within the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850.

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!
Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.
The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
