Water Scam Awareness
Please be aware of water testing gimmicks. Some companies solicit business through door hangers and mail made to look official. They may say that it is recommended for your water to be tested on a regular basis or that there may be harmful bacteria in your water or other similar phrases aimed to alert your senses. You may presume the material is a sales pitch, unless the material includes the official City of Groveland logo and address.
