URGENT TWQA BULLETIN

The TWQA office has recently received several consumer complaints regarding the actions of an unidentified person or persons in the San Antonio area who is/are soliciting consumers using the attached cards. (see attached to this email).  The unidentified person or persons is/are reportedly offering a water test in a manner that  implies the TWQA’s involvement or endorsement.

In addition, at least one of the individuals handing out these cards identified herself as an official of the TWQA, using a vest with the association’s logo.

Offering a water test is not a problem in and of itself.  However, since the TWQA does not participate in or provide endorsements for any particular water test, the above-described actions are highly inappropriate and a violation of the TWQA Ethics Code. 

If you have any information as to the identification of the person or persons involved in the above scheme please immediately contact:

Daina Grace
Executive Director
Texas Water Quality Association
Email:  twqadirector@twqa.org
Fax:  361-573-6708
Phone:  361-573-6707

All calls or other communication will be handled confidentially.  Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
