Swedish hikers warned not to drink from watersheds

Hikers in the otherwise “water safe” Åre in Sweden are advised not to drink from the normally safe watersheds in the area.


Hikers now need to carry all their water supplies with them.

The water can be contaminated with giardia and cryptosporidium, two microscopic parasites that produce cysts that are very resistant to harsh environmental conditions. These parasites even in small amounts can cause illness; symptoms are normally Diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, gas, malaise, and weight loss.

Joni_didze from the Greenpaece forum “Louder Than Words” point the finger at the general public: “Hikers have been advised to not drink from several watersheds in areas that are becoming more and more polluted from human developments.”
