Does One Really Need to be Told Not to Drink This Water?

So who would make the mistake that this rusty, open to the elements container could possibly hold potable water?

  • Considering that this water is stored on a construction site, it’s not a question of whether or not anyone is going to drink it. Most specifications for cast-in-place concrete require potable water to be used in the mix. I would presume this water is being used for such purpose, and not for drinking.

  • My wording is backward. The two PVC pipes feeding this tank are connected to pumps used to dewater the excavation. The container is marked “non-potable” so the pumped water isn’t used in any cast-in-place concrete mixes.

  • I’m concerned that anyone that DOES think it’s potable, doesn’t actually know what non-potable means.
