Filtered water in Fernley?

Postby billgilman » Wed Jul 18, 2012 4:41 pm

Hey there y'all

Wondering if there's a water store or other source for filtered water in Fernley? We will need about 100 gallons.

Thanks

Massive

Wondering this as well. A google map search doesn't come up with anything. Don't want to have to go West to Reno just to get water if I don't have too.

Silver Springs maybe?

There is a Walmart in Fernley that has a Culligan dispenser to refill your own containers with. I have 4 seven gallon jugs I fill up there. I think it is around 30 cents a gallon.

Thanks for this! We're hoping to fill a 55 gallon drum, so if anyone has a lead on a water store type situation, please post it, but this will do in a pinch!

ps. The Gerlach water sale is good for shower water but tastes funny to me

Yes, the thing about the water stores in Reno is they can pull up a hose to your truck so you don't have to unload the 55 gallon drum at all. I don't have a lift gate on my truck, nor would I like to ever touch the 55 gallon drum until it's empty again. Hopefully the Gerlach thing is happening again this year, but it's awfully scary to wait until then to get water. Would love a place in Fernley or Fallon that could get a hose out to the truck.

My understanding is that the same local sources will be offering water again, during the same hours of operation as 2011. It will likely be mentioned in the JRS (again) as we get closer to the event.

It is. I got the info (pricing, days, hours) from gerlachgid@yahoo.com. You can too.
The info they gave me said they're having a limited number of dumpsters available for $5 a bag. When they're full, it's over.

I posted the 2012 info on ePaya but the info was removed as it was deemed "commercial".

Really?
Thats really silly.
People are specifically looking for the information. You have the answers and the details, but can't share it because its commercial. Even though the information has be released the last 2 years in the JRS.
Very very silly.

I've also been wondering about this. If memory serves me, it would have already been in a JRS by now. I was pretty excited to see someone had already started a topic on this.

And the info for the past two years was posted on ePlaya. (Still was, when I looked after this year's was deleted)
But you can get it yourself from Gerlach's email address, which was also posted in the past.

Here's what they sent me RE: Water .

For Burning Man 2012:

The Town of Gerlach will again be selling potable water for RVs and portable water containers. We will also have containers for sale on a first come basis. We have two sizes of containers, 15 gallon for $45.00 and 6 gallon for $20.00. Purchase of a container entitles you to free water for your container. We will have ample filling stations in front of our town shop located at 330 Diablo Drive. As you enter town on Main Street, directional signs will help you locate the water station filling area. Our rates are $.50/gallon up to 100 gallons, $.45/gallon for sales above 100 and less than 200 gallons, and $.40/gallon for sales greater than 200 gallons. We will not be taking reservations for water sales or containers as we have in the past. All water sales are on a first come basis.
Our Days and Hours of Operation will be as follows:

*Hours and Days
Water Sales
Monday, August 20th – Thursday August 23rd
9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Friday, August 24th – Monday, August 27th
6:00 a.m. to midnight
Tuesday, August 28th – Wednesday August 29th
9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

We can only accept cash at the water sales area. An ATM machine will be available for your convenience.

Our decision to sell water before the event and collect trash after the event is an attempt to keep our water rates reasonable for the citizens of Gerlach. Our water comes from two springs at the foot of the Granite Mountain Range and is treated at our state-of-the-art water treatment facility to insure that the highest safety standards are met. Unfortunately, the initial cost for this water system, which was mandated by the federal government, and the ongoing maintenance, has placed a huge burden on our 150 residents, many of whom are seniors on fixed income. In addition to helping the town residents, buying water here, will increase your fuel efficiency by reducing the weight you need to carry by bringing your own water. Water is heavy, more than 8lbs/gal. This should save you money in gas in addition to helping our town.

Yup. Matches what they sent me on July 3rd. (And again on July 12th for some reason)
Did yours include the info about the dumpsters too?
I posted that and the dumpster info.

Yeah I got the dumpster info too, I can post it or PM if anyone wants it. I think it was on the Blog and maybe Jackrabbit as well.

I tried to remain on topic :)

The thread plugging one joint's water sales was pulled, yes. As I explained in the PM that was sent explaining, the info regarding local resources was still being compiled and would be posted as an announcement once the communications team had all the info together and got the JRS issue out. That's just finally happened, a local resources announcement is forthcoming.

I didn't check, but it's probably linked from this page.
Crap, I thought that you were talking about Gerlach.

Yeah, but you were living in a shoe box in the middle of the road...

I think you bathed in those hoof prints, too.
