During this past weekend, several home owners were contacted by a male individual stating the city of Greenville’s water contained dangerous chemicals. If you have recently been contacted by someone claiming your water is dangerous and claim they need to take water samples from inside your home, do not let them inside the home.

If there is ever an issue with the city’s water system, the city will take the following steps to inform as many citizens as possible:

1) Issue a Boil Water Notice through the United States Post Office;

2) Go door-to-door and post a notice on your front door; and

3) Issue a Press Release

Do not fall prey to solicitors or anyone who calls you or comes to your door posing as a City employee.

If this happens to you call Greenville Police Department, 903-457-2900, to file a report.
