A trailer houses the system that pulls water into its series of tanks that disinfect, clean and make the water taste good. The water is then pumped out into taps that residents can use to fill their own jugs, or the water could be pumped into barrels to be hauled where it is needed.

Depending on where they are pulling the water from, a regular water filter type system just won't do it. It should be a water purification system that will purify the water instead of just cleaning and disinfecting. There are too many contaminants in the water to just use a water filter type system.
