Please be wary of a telephone scammer claiming to be from the CBJ Water Department. CBJ received a report from a resident who said the scammer asked for a credit card payment for an overdue water account. The phone number associated with the call was a local number.

Residents should be aware that the Public Works Utilities Division does not call customers to request credit card or payment information over the phone.
