Rockdale Water Resources Advises Citizens to Be Aware of Impersonators Attempting to Enter Homes

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. – Rockdale County Water Resources (RWR) is advising citizens to be aware of individuals impersonating county employees attempting to enter homes to conduct free water samples, after reports of incidents occurring in neighboring Gwinnett County.

Reports say the suspect was offering to collect free lead and copper samples to gain access into customers’ homes. Most attempts have been targeted towards Spanish-speaking families living in the Norcross area.

While no reports have been made in Rockdale County, RWR is asking its customers to be vigilant, to protect themselves and their families from this threat.
• If anyone claiming to be a Rockdale County employee asks to take water samples inside your home, do not let them in.
• Call 911 if you feel unsafe.

For any questions or concerns regarding this report, please contact RWR at 770-278-7500.
