Search for Kesha in the system (optional)

You can first check for Kesha McDermott’s location using the self-registration terminal. It’s only optional and you don’t need to do this to find her.

If you do prefer to use this, look for Kesha’s name in the terminal.

Search for Kesha at the river

Now, get to the river just nearby. The location is shown in the map below.

You should find her body at the river. Loot all of the items she had on her. A voice recording should also play immediately.

Next, get to the dirty water and drink it. You will then find out that the water is contaminated and get infected with rads.

I’m not sure if you can just collect it instead of drinking it.

Test a sample of water from Flatwood’s pumps

Go to the water pumps at Flatwood. The exact location is shown in the map below.

You will see two water pumps beside a shack. You can drink and collect the water.

There will be less rads this time, but still it lowers your HP. You have to collect it this time.
