Water Security Agency Urges Saskatchewan Residents to be Cautious of Doorstep “Water Testing” Kits

Released on July 31, 2018

The Water Security Agency (WSA) wishes to draw public attention to the business practices of private companies leaving “water testing kits” on people’s doorsteps.

Recently, some residents across the province have been receiving these kits, which include a bottle and instructions for water testing.  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.

The public can see testing results for all WSA regulated waterworks at
