The Metropolitan District Commission is alerting customers about two people posing as water company employees attempting to enter homes.
On Tuesday, 7 two men claiming to be from the water company accessed a house on Fenn Road in Newington after telling the resident there was a water main break nearby and asking them to check the faucets in the house.
No additional information is available about the incident.
MDC is urging residents, especially those who are home during the day, to be alert for imposters by following these tips:
MDC field employees wear clothing and drive vehicles clearly marked with the MDC logo.
The MDC encourages customers to ask for identification from anyone who comes to their door. All MDC employees have photo identification badges and will gladly display them upon request.
The policy is “No Identification - No Entry.”
If someone comes to your door claiming to be from the water company and you do not have a previously scheduled appointment, do not allow access to your home until calling the MDC Command Center at 860-278-7850 ext 3600 to verify their identity.
If you have any doubt about the individual’s identity or motives, or authenticity of their credentials, do not allow them entry into your home and call the police.
