The sites offer bottled water, water filters, replacement cartridges and home water testing kits.

The Department of Health and Human Resources is asking people to use these resources to have clean water for drinking, food preparation and brushing your teeth.

The sites are open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m at the following locations:
