More importantly benzine and some other chemicals are not filterable so you can't drink nor can you cook with water contaminated by benzine. Near where I live some 14 miles away is an area that is a super fund site. The feds say no filter can be used so people are having water trucked in for consuption.

Benzine and some other chemicals are not filterable, but in an open container will boil off below water boiling temperature so that it is only nessary to heat it up to boiling and let it cool.
