Citrus County Seeking Participants for Required Lead and Copper Testing

The County is required to obtain no less than thirty residential samples in the Charles A. Black, Citrus Springs-Pine Ridge, and Sugarmill Woods PWS during this year’s sampling event, which will take place during the month of June.

 These samples are collected to determine the contribution of faucet fixtures and household plumbing and/or solder to the lead and copper levels in tap water. This sampling effort is only accomplished through the cooperation of homeowners and residents. The sampling and testing is scheduled for the month of June 2017 at no cost to our customers and takes only a few minutes of your time.

 If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact Devon Villareal-Dabbs at 352-527-5427 or by email at [email protected] by no later than May 31. Please include your name, sample address, and email address in your response.

The first forty responses received will be included in the sampling event. Upon acknowledgement of your participation, additional information will be provided via email including reminders regarding sample kit drop-off arrangements, sampling procedures, and the date of the sampling event.
