And did anyone else sort of think the same thing I did when they discovered the lake water was contaminated? That they could just "filter" it by boiling it and then collecting the runoff/steam letting it drain into separate vessel? Effective making a still to clean the water? (Similar to how a "Solar Still" works to make sea water drinkable in survival situations.)
