"The city refrained from commenting on the social media post until we had received the final test results of our own sample as we will only provide final results to the public. Whoever posted this on social media altered the results to show that the city was in violation of the federal drinking water standards. Brandon has and will continue to provide water that meets and exceeds all primary drinking water standards set by the EPA for the health and safety of our citizens. My family including my dog and I will continue to drink that water supplied by the city of Brandon."
