Have you been asked to provide water samples?
Many residents have been receiving notices from Pure Life Water suggesting that you are required to provide water samples to assist in a community water test they are conducting. This is not tied to any City or State regulatory sampling program. The City has no relation to the study being conducted by Pure Life Water.
Please remember that the City collects all necessary water quality samples throughout our water system. All samples are collected by licensed water operators who follow strict sampling guidelines. All sample collectors will be uniformed City employees in marked City vehicles. Should the City need to conduct water sampling at your home, we will provide residents notices in advance on City of Sugar Land letterhead.
Please call 311 or 281-275-2900 if you have further questions or concerns.
