Gainesville: Discard any water testing kits that show up at your house

By AccessWDUN Staff

Those drinking water testing kits that have been showing up at some homes in Gainesville should be discarded, according to the city's Water Resources Department.

A posting on the department's Facebook page says the kits are not from the City of Gainesville.

"We perform monthly sampling at over 100 sites on the Gainesville water system that expands throughout Hall County and some surrounding areas," the posting says.  "Any sampling done is completed by Gainesville staff. Gainesville employees can be identified by their city vehicle, attire, and identification."
