I've been drinking untreated ADK water since I was a kid- lakes, ponds, streams, and the occasional skidder rut if I'm thirsty enough. I've never used a filter. Only got giardia once in the mid-1990's drinking out of a steam that I didn't know flowed out of an newly active beaver pond. I'd been getting water out of that stream my whole life with no issues.

I still drink unfiltered out of many bodies of water but I pay attention to where beaver are active.
