Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett’s office has been contacted by constituents who have apparently received a flyer concerning residential water testing. The flyer incorporates the state seal and tells recipients “your area has been selected to participate in a water quality testing for Knox County.”


There is no such contractor operating on behalf of Knox County. It’s not clear whether this is a misleading sales pitch or an attempted scam. Regardless, this is in no way affiliated with Knox County. Mayor Burchett has asked Sheriff Jones to look into the matter.
