Sandy City has been cited by DEQ after tap water found contaminated with lead, copper and fluoride

Sandy City has been cited by the state Department of Environmental Quality after tests found high levels of lead, copper and fluoride in its water systems and is advising residents to not drink the water or use it for cooking until they receive confirmation it is safe.

After DEQ officials announced the lead and copper contamination Friday evening, the city said those in the affected area — from 10600 South to 11400 South and 700 East to 2000 East — could use tap water after flushing their water systems. By Saturday morning, city officials changed their mind.
