Bogus callers

If we’re carrying out repair or maintenance work, our employees may need access to your property. For your own safety, always ask for proof of identification. All of our employees carry photographic identity cards.

Remember bogus callers may try to trick you by saying there’s an urgent problem with your water.

If there is someone at your door claiming to be from Northern Ireland Water, please take the following action:

If in doubt, keep them out
