Clean water is essential to life. Part of the reason why cities in the Middle Ages could only grow to a certain size was the lack of water purification.

The lack of clean, available water also caused great problems with most armies on the march - many soldiers dying of nasty dieases due to drinking unclean water (it being the only available source).
