City of Wichita Falls Warns About Water Quality Check Phone Calls

The City of Wichita Falls wants their water customers to know they are not offering quality checks of water in anyone's home. They warn it's likely a private company trying to sell water purification systems.

The City's water system has been rated a "Superior Water System" by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the highest rating they offer. These ratings are based on continued compliance with Federal and State regulations governing drinking water. If a resident is concerned about the quality of their water the city will gladly perform tests for them for free by calling 691-1153.

Residents who may have received a phone call offering the water testing are urged to contact the Better Business Bureau at 691-1174. The BBB has reported receiving about a dozen complaints from City residents regarding the water testing. For more in formation please contact the Public Information Office at 761-7401.
