The Water Security Agency (WSA) is warning the public of private companies who have left “water testing kits” on people’s doorsteps.
According to a statement, there have been reports of these kits which include a bottle and instructions to test your water.
"The instructions for taking a water sample are incorrect and the bottle provided does not appear to be sterilized. Residents should be cautious if they are encouraged to purchase water purification kits at the doorstep."
"Public confidence in Saskatchewan’s drinking water systems is a core priority for WSA. WSA partners with municipalities across Saskatchewan to ensure drinking water is safe, in accordance with national drinking water standards. Rigorous and ongoing testing requirements are a condition of WSA’s permits of water systems."
