COVID-19: An update on your wastewater services

Apr 09, 2020
Our employees work every day to provide our communities with safe and reliable wastewater services. In the face of COVID-19, that commitment has never been stronger.
 
“Our employees take great pride in providing essential utility services to our customers during these unprecedented times.”
Catherine Heigel, EVP & COO Corix Regulated Utilities
 
We’re also committed to keeping you continually informed of our efforts—and how you can help us, and your community, get through this together.
Please observe Physical Distancing
 
Our field employees continue to perform meter reads and maintenance in your area, while practicing mandatory Physical Distancing (min. 2m/6ft). If you see someone working in your neighborhood, please extend the same consideration—for everyone’s safety.
 
Billing considerations
 
We realize many customers are facing unexpected financial hardship as a result of COVID-19. As announced March 10, we have suspended late fee payments and disconnections for nonpayment.
 
In the meantime, we encourage all customers to stay as current as possible with bill payments, to avoid large balances that may be harder to manage later.
Scammers are still in business
 
A particularly ugly side of this crisis is scammers taking advantage of people when they’re most vulnerable. Please be extra vigilant for these phone, email, and online scams.
 
Disconnection Threat
Never respond to a threat to disconnect your services. Disconnections have been suspended for the time being.
 
Requested Payment
Never respond to an urgent request for payment, or purchase of a prepaid debit card. Our trusted payment options remain unchanged.
 
Personal Information
Never provide personal information to someone claiming to be from a utility company. We would never request this by email or online form.
 
And while Physical Distancing should be your primary concern when allowing anyone into your home, if one of our field employees needs access to your water meter, they will first show you their company identification.
 
If you have any doubts whatsoever about the legitimacy of a phone call, email, or service visit—STOP—hang-up, delete the email, and contact Customer Care directly to report your concerns.

Keep using those sanitary wipes, but PLEASE put them in the trash, NOT down the toilet.
