Usage of WaterEdit
Over a period of 24 hours, an amount of water (8p/survivor) is consumed. Storing excess water raises your survivors' morale, while not storing enough water will decrease it. Running out of water will cause morale to drop greatly, though survivors will not die of dehydration. Storing and maintaining a sufficient supply of Water is also required to attract new survivors. The required amount can be checked by looking at the Compound Progress Report. Its associated storage building is the Water Storage.
Water can be found throughout the Dead Zone (there are distinctive water coolers which typically only contain water), though the amount scavenged depends on the location and container being searched, with Large Supermarkets usually providing the largest amount. Water Collectors also produce a small amount of water every hour. It is also possible to trade Fuel for Water at The Store.
