Places to get Water in Moab, Utah
Water Information >>>
Water is a matter of life and death in Moab if you plan on being outside. No matter if you are hiking, biking, golfing, 4 wheeling, ATV’ing or whatever, people die here from dehydration (lack of water). Always plan on bringing your own water wherever you go because drinking water will not always be available. In the summer plan on one gallon of water per person per day. Drink constantly and not in short gulp sessions every 30 minutes or an hour. Once you are thirsty it’s too late, you are dehydrated.
|The best way to carry water is through one of the pack mounted systems that has a water bladder. Go for the larger ones that offer 50 ounces or more. You can view some of the suggested models here. If you are doing aerobic excercise in the summer plan on carrying a 100oz bladder plus several additional water bottles for your trip.||
