FYI - Possible LA Metro Water District Scam

It has been brought to our attention, from several community members, there are people going around the neighborhoods claiming to be from LA Metropolitan Water claiming they need to replace or install water pressure regulators.  

The person will wear a tool belt and a badge to make themselves look like an "official" worker.  This is a very common tactic used by criminals to disguise themselves to get into your home or yard.  This is something to be mindful and cautious about.

If you have any doubt if someone is from the Metro Water, get a business card, a badge or ID number, a name of a supervisor, and contact Metro Water to double check the validity of the person in question.  You can find your local office on there website (http://www.mwdh2o.com/WhoWeAre/Contact-Us/Pages/default.aspx) or contact Metro Water Headquarters at 213-217-6000.
