SALT LAKE CITY – Sandy City is warning people about scammers coming to homes, claiming to be from the Health Department, to test the water and asking for financial information.

It says “Sandy City and the Health Department will not ask for any money from you”.
On February 15th the Utah Department of Environmental Quality first warned residents about their water supply being tainted with fluoride. Sandy received its first call from a resident complaining about “bad tasting water” on Feb. 6 at 4:50 p.m.
The contaminated water made some residents sick. According to the timeline Mayor Kurt Bradburn shared during a town hall meeting on Feb. 18, the city received “multiple calls” complaining about everything from a bad taste into the water to all-out illness.
Now the city’s communication process with staff employees has become a point of contention as leaders attempt to regain public trust.
