City Warns of Water Testing Scam
Cornwall ON – The City of Cornwall has become aware of recent instances where City homeowners are being approached by individuals offering a free analysis of the home’s drinking water.
The City is not currently contacting homeowners with offers to analyze drinking water samples. Residents should be aware that any individuals who are undertaking these efforts are not City employees, nor do they represent the City of Cornwall.
The City wants to ensure all citizens that Cornwall’s municipal drinking water is safe.
This issue has been raised before, and a similar statement of warning was issued by the City in January of this year. The Friday May 21 issue of the Standard-Freeholder carried a story that quoted the Cornwall Police Services as saying they were investigating recent incidents. Should you have any information concerning the actions of the people posing as inspectors, please contact Det. Sgt. Jeff Carroll at 613-932-2110, ext. 2605, or call Crime Stoppers at 613-937-8477.
Should you have any concerns about this situation or the quality of your drinking water please contact the City’s Water Purification Plant Supervisor Owen O’keefe, at 613-930-2787 x2573.
