[at-l] beasties in the water

We hiked the West Rim Trail (fantastic 30 mile trail in north central PA) 
this past week and filtered water (Pur Hiker) at a very low and slow 
(hardly moving) stream.  My daughter  had stomach intestinal upset for 
two days following our trip and we both suspect the water.  I seem to 
have a stronger digestive tract and have not been affected. We are 
careful about separating intake and output tubes and are always most 
careful of container contamination, etc.  Could it be with the dry 
conditions -low water here in PA that there is a higher concentration of 
beasties in the water?
