The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is reminding Minnesota residents to beware of false claims, deceptive sales pitches, and scare tactics being used by some water treatment companies to sell expensive and unnecessary water treatment systems.
In some of the worst instances, the salesperson has implied or said that he is working with the city’s water utility or the state health department. In most cases, the systems are being sold for thousands of dollars more than they would cost if bought through a reputable water treatment company.The United States Environmental Protection Agency sets standards for public water supplies. Water is tested regularly to ensure that these standards are met. For test results in Apple Valley, contact Public Works at 952-953-2400 or see the Drinking Water Report.
