(KUTV) — A couple dozen people woke up early on their day off to help test water around Sandy City on Monday morning.
The ‘no-drinking’ order was lifted Sunday night leaving some residents still concerned.
Two friends from Sandy spent their holiday walking neighborhoods. They asked residents to test their water.
With a white-labeled bottle in their hand, Monica and Lisa approached each home they were assigned to hoping to test the water from every kitchen sink.
With each knock came a friendly greeting, despite the reason for their visit.
City leaders say nearly 3,000 homes were possibly hit by a large amount of fluoride following a recent snowstorm.
Officials promised anyone with concerns they would test their home.
Public works tested 200 samples over the weekend; all but one came back clean.
It’s a very expensive process, according to the mayor.
Residents told 2News the city could have been handled the situation better. Mayor Kurt Bradburn agreed.
Officials from the city say the results will be posted online.
A town hall meeting is scheduled for Monday at 7 p.m. at Mount Jordan Middle School.
