The Water Security Agency (WSA) is warning residents of fake water testing kits that have recently been left on doorsteps.
 
"The Water Security Agency is there to ensure that people have safe water and that's what we do across the province and that if they see any kits on their doorstep, that may be from a private business that may have a commercial motive and wanting to sell them something and that they should not be concerned that their water isn't safe," said WSA Communication Manager Ron Podbielski.
 
The kits aren't what the Water Security Agency would use for water testing.
 
The WSA partners with municipalities across Saskatchewan to make sure the province's drinking water is safe.
 
A main priority for the WSA is for residents to be confident in the province's drinking water systems.
 
The kits include incorrect instructions for water testing and a bottle which is not sterilized or the correct size.
 
Testing results for all Water Security Agency waterworks can be viewed at http://www.saskh2o.ca/MyDrinkingWater.asp.
