BOYNTON BEACH, FL --- Boynton Beach Utilities customers have received phone calls, and mail solicitations, from individuals giving the impression that they are City of Boynton Beach employees. They are offering free water testing with the hope to sell the homeowner a water purification system. Callers are not City employees, nor were they hired on behalf of the City of Boynton Beach. In addition, the City did not mail out any information concerning free water testing.


The City does not endorse, or recommend, any type of water purification system for home or business use. Boynton Beach Utilities continues to provide the highest quality of water for its customers. If you have any questions, please call Boynton Beach Utilities Water Quality Division at 561.742.6964.
