Watershed Management warning residents about scam calls on water testing
The Atlanta Department of Watershed Management is warning Atlanta residents about possible scam artists calling them about false testing of chlorine levels in tap water.
The department said in a press release that it is not testing chlorine levels and does not have any company doing so on its behalf. The people calling about the phony water testing reportedly offer a $25 gift card in exchange for a response, the department says.
“Please be on alert for potentially misleading calls and be very cautious in allowing people to access your homes,” said Watershed Management Commissioner Kishia L. Powell in the press release.
Anyone contacted about water testing can call the city’s ATL 311 Customer Service Center at 404-546-0311.
