Can you provide recent information about the water quality along the Canning Stock Route ?

Those who say something cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

It's near impossible to get an accurate water quality report on the Canning as all it takes is one animal to die in a well, gorge or tank the day before you arrive & it's no longer fit to drink. We found a rotting camel in one water hole & a goanna down a recently rebuilt well which we rescued before it died. The best plan is to carry all your drinking water & only rely on water along the way for washing of which there are plenty of options mentioned in the various trip notes & guide books.

Yeah we found a dead snake in Well 26 and dead birds in Well 42.

But we boiled the water anyway. Carried 60 litres of drinking water. Used the Well water for everything else. Well 6 and Well 46 had the best water.

i heard some low life pinched the SS bucket from Well 46. So carry a bucket and 15m of rope just in case.
