Aquarion Water cautions customers on scam

Published February 12. 2013 4:00AM

Aquarion Water Co. has cautioned customers not to allow anyone into their home or business for maintenance, especially when no appointment has been scheduled, unless the worker first shows a photo identification.

"In light of recent cases around the state where criminals posing as utility workers have gained entrance to people's homes, we want to stress the importance of being careful," said Charles V. Firlotte, Aquarion president and CEO.

Aquarion employees and contractors are required to carry company-issued photo identification at all times and to present such identification upon request.

For further questions, call the water company's customer service at (800) 732-9678.
