WESTCHESTER, NY -- United Water officials are urging customers to check the identification of individuals claiming to be water company employees. The company issued the advice following reports of individuals posing as utility workers in Westchester.
United Water employees wear uniforms and I.D. badges with the company name and logo. The badge also shows the employee’s color photograph, name, job title and date the badge was issued. Customers can also look for a white United Water vehicle which prominently features the logo.
Customers should take a few moments to be sure that the person on their door step has the proper credentials. This is especially important if they have not called for a service visit.
A customer who has doubts should have the person wait outside. They can call United Water to verify that the company has sent someone to their home. They can also contact their local police department.
In Westchester County customers can call United Water at 914-632-6900. In Rockland County customers can call United Water at 845-623-1500.
