The Canton Water Department issued an announcement this week, warning residents of potential callers who claim they are from the department looking to test water in local homes.
The statement, as it appears on the Canton town website, is as follows:
We have received calls from residents that callers identifying themselves as working for the water department request to come into residents homes to test their water. These calls are not from the water department. The water department does not test the water in individual homes. If you should receive a call of this nature, it is suggested that you call the Canton Police Department at 781-821-5090.
