Is clear outdoor water safe to drink?

Water Safety and Camping

Don't let the purity of the outdoors cause you to let down your guard when it comes to water safety. Even the clearest water can contain harmful bacteria and pathogens caused by animal and human byproducts. To make outdoor water safe to drink, use a portable water filter or portable water purifier. Portable water filters remove bacteria and protozoan cysts, while portable water purifiers remove viruses as well.
