Didn't know that.
I do remember as a kid one of the neighbors did have plumbing in their house. They collected rainwater off the roof, which went into wooden barrels that had lids on them. I do remember algae in those barrels (this was north of Chicago so not deep south). Maybe there were times when the lid wasn't on? Don't know.
I just remember seeing it whenever I was visiting and my then 12 year old girlfriend would go fetch water from the barrel and then boil the water on the stove before we made anything to drink.
