ECWA ADVISES CUSTOMERS OF INDIVIDUALS IMPERSONATING WATER METER WORKERS IN TOWN OF AMHERST



May 26, 2017

The Erie County Water Authority (ECWA) has recently become aware of occurrences involving individuals posing as ECWA water meter workers in the Town of Amherst. For this reason, customers are encouraged to learn how to properly identify ECWA employees before granting access to their home or business.

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 claiming 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 dial 9-1-1 or call the ECWA's Customer Service at 716-849-8484.
