MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Mamaroneck officials want residents to be extra careful if they receive a call saying a utility worker needs access to their homes.
A Weaver Street resident told Town of Mamaroneck officials that he received a call saying a water company employee would need to enter his home because there had been a water main break in the area, but the caller hung up when asked to give a name. This call was not made by Westchester Joint Water Works staff, town officials said.
Mayor Norman Rosenblum said he wants residents to know that WJWW employees have photo IDs, which if not prominently displayed, can be produced upon request. If any customer has any reason to doubt the identity of someone identifying themselves as a water company employee, they should contact their local police or Westchester Joint Water Works 914-698-3500.
