Oxford County has been made aware of incidents this week of door to door salesmen requesting permission to enter residents’ homes to have their water meters inspected. The incidents were reported in the Town of Ingersoll.
These salesman are not Oxford County employees and are not affiliated in any way with Oxford County Public Works operations. Should Oxford County Water Operations staff need to access a resident’s water meter, they would be travelling in a vehicle clearly marked with the Oxford County logo, and will have an Oxford County ID badge.
Residents should use discretion in dealing with unsolicited visitors who request to inspect equipment inside their home. If people are unsure of a visitor, they should contact their local police.
Although EZT residents do not currently have water meters, the Township would like to make all residents aware of this type of activity that has been occurring.
