WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut residents are being warned that people are posing as water company employees and trying to get into homes in Windsor. 

On Wednesday, a man told a homeowner near Graham Road that he was an employee with Metropolitan District Commission and needed to check the water pressure. The man told he would return in the next day to check the water. 

MDC officials said the man did not work for their company.  

Residents told to remember the following items: 

  • MDC field employees wear clothing and drive vehicles clearly marked with the MDC logo.
  • The MDC encourages customers to stay secure within the home while asking 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.
