Most dump stations I have ever been to have a sign posted right there saying to not use the water - not potable water, do not use.

I would just unscrew their hose and use my own fresh water white hose and fill up.

If that close I would not use. Notwithstanding using my own hose, filter, cleaning, etc...

If it says it is potable water, I would use my own hose and disinfect the spigot. The potable water was at the dump station in Denali Natl Park (dry camping) and it has to be the nicest dump station we have ever encountered. Everyone who wanted water filled up there. They did offer showers at the general store/laundry but at $5 per person, that is pretty pricey. You either had to bring your water with you or fill up with potable water at the dump station.

Thanks to everyone for their posts. Just to clarify the spigot is Potable water. My concern was the close proximity to the dump pipe and the way some folks might connect to this spigot with their black water tank cleaning hose. I really like the ideas of the bleach solution in a spray bottle and running some water prior to connecting my potable water hose. Again appreciate all your opinions.
Thanks
Doug

I'm with Mike on this on. You can have contaminated water connections anywhere. I watched a guy in a CG stick his Slinky Hose right up to the spigot to wash his hose out before storing it on departure. When I approached him, he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away.

You mean like they DO just before they leave a site after having been on full hookups. At least at or near a dump station, the furtherest faucet is likely to be clean, but not so on a full hookup site.

Spend some time in France and you will soon become immune. There is is common to have only one tap and almost all RVs have cassette toilets and the easiest way to flush them out after emptying is to shove the spout as far over the faucet as possible and turn the water on.
Anyway, I suggest we get a bit precious about these sort of things. Where is the evidence of people suffering harm by connecting their hose to a faucet regardless of what sort of hose was on there previously. Turn the faucet on full for a few seconds, connect the hose, run the water through the hose for 30 seconds and then fill your tanks.

Perhaps the question should have been asked - of those who drink the water out of the on-board tanks, who would use the faucet.
That would eliminate those who choose to spend their money on bottled water for everything
