Every 3 years, PeopleService is required to provide the State of Minnesota with random water samples to determine the level of trace lead and copper in our water supply. In the next few days, People Service will be leaving white boxes on the main door steps of some homes throughout the community. The box contains a one liter plastic bottle along with instructions on how to take the samples. Please check your step and if you find a white box please take the time to read the instructions and take the samples within 5 days of receiving the box. Your assistance is appreciated. Thank you!
