Greetings All,

My wife and I are also moving up to the area north/northeast of Klamath Falls and have been looking for a bulk potable water supplier to fill a cistern while we build our homestead to hold us over until we get systems in place.

No one has said if or who they buy bulk water from. Is everyone filling from wells, or is anyone having water trucked in? Who is trucking potable water in the area?

Thanks,
~Jon

I was told that Mt. Mazama Spring Water Co. does but I haven't called yet. I know they deliver the typical big bottles of water to residences but someone who lives in my area said they also have water tankers that deliver bulk.

Jon, could you post what you find out about that...how much they can deliver at once and how much it costs? I think we're going to go with a well, but like you it might be a short term alternative.

Okay, I finally called Mt Mazama Spring Water. They do in fact do bulk delivery. They use a 1000 gallon tanker for the deliveries with a 500 gallon minimum. The delivery fee quoted for Bly Mtn area is $75. The charge for the water is $0.50 a gallon. It didn't sound like it was a common occurrence for them though.

For a one time shot to get a cistern started, I could see it, but for more than 1000 gal... Nope. I'd be inclined to find a used 1-ton, build a flatbed/stakebed base and mount a tank to it and transport it myself. This would also be a very useful rig for any number of onsite tasks including fire suppression. Hell, I've seen used 500-1000 gal firetrucks for $5-10k.

Water is available if necessary. It's another tool in the toolbox.

I have been looking at the totes recently and they seem to be available frequently and generally run $75-$125. New from U-Line they run $500.

About 15 years ago i bought a 210 gallon pickup bed poly tank at Grants Pass Grange CO-OP. It cost me $100.

Hmmm, I was told it was $75 for Mt. Mazama but not about that additional water charge. That's high. I'll bet if they had contracts for bulk delivery in the area, though, and weren't making a special trip for one residence, it would be less expensive.

For building purposes, though, one has to submit the name of a certified water hauler that will deliver to your cistern to ensure a supply. So that alone comes in handy.
