A few customers have called to report someone knocking on their door posing as a city employee and demanding a water sample. Others have asked to inspect the water lines inside the home after a main break in the area. Please be advised that our water employees do not normally do this unannounced.
If someone identifies themselves as a city employee and asks to enter your home or collect a water sample, please ask to see their employee identification. Our employees wear a photo ID badge, a city-issued uniform or shirt and would also be driving a city vehicle.
Columbus Police has been informed. If this happens, please report it immediately to 645-4545. If you have any water quality concerns, please call our Water Quality Assurance Lab at 645-7691.
