Heidi Strickland said the quality of her water has changed with the past ten days.

"It's just a rotten egg kind of smell, like you overcooked your eggs on the stove," said Strickland.

She isn't sure if the change is due to the Mosaic sinkhole incident, but she is very concerned.  Millions of gallons of toxic water poured into the Floridan aquifer after a sinkhole opened on the company's property.

"I'm' not a scientist, but it seems like the two are going hand and hand," said Strickland.

Mosaic is offering free water quality tests, but Strickland plans to have her own independent test done on the water.

"How can we trust them to be the ones treating our water," said Strickland.

Strickland's neighbor, Beth Sprague, is also concerned about water quality, but she isn't skeptical about asking for a free test from Mosaic.

"I would trust them, they wanna do what's right," said Sprague.

Mosaic representatives said the water quality testing beings this week.
