The New Richmond Utility Water Department will be involved in a water main and fire hydrant flushing and valve operation program starting May 15, 2017.
Scammers have started posing as utility companies to get money or personal information from customers. A customer in our community reported receiving a phone call from New Richmond Utilities demanding payment or their service would be disconnected within hours. New Richmond Utilities does not handle disconnections is this manner. We want our customers to be aware of these fraud attempts. Your information is safe with us! Call us at 715-246-4167 for verification if someone shows up at your door unexpectedly claiming to work for the utility, or if you receive an email or phone call requesting personal information or immediate payment via cash or prepaid card.
