Water Authority Warns Customers



Buffalo, NY (WBEN) - The Eire County Water Authority is asking customers to be cautious when allowing service workers access to their homes.

The announcement comes after a recent incident of individuals posing as water meter service workers in the Town of Cheektowaga.

The Water Authority says that all ECWA meter service workers travel in blue and white vehicles with an ECWA decal on both sides, wear a blue uniform with an ECWA emblem and carry a photo identification badge.

ECWA officials urge all customers to confirm these three visible forms of identification from anyone saying they are at the premises to read or perform work on the water meter. If customers are not shown proper identification, they should immediately shut their doors and call the police or the ECWA’s Customer Service department.
