California American Water cares about the safety of its employees and customers. We want to remind customers, that thieves sometimes pose as utility workers to rob homes or con money from unsuspecting customers.

“California American Water has established an uncompromising safety culture and always puts the best interests of our employees and customers first,” said California American Water President Rich Svindland. “Nothing is more important to our company than ensuring the health and safety of our employees and customers."

All California American Water field service personnel wear uniforms, drive vehicles with the California American Water logo and wear photo identification badges containing the company's brand name.

If a utility worker makes an unscheduled visit to your residence, do not let them into your home without proper identification. Customers are urged to take time to examine the photo identification tag whenever a California American Water employee arrives at their home or business. Customers are encouraged to call our customer service center to verify an employee’s identification and reason for their visit. Additionally, our field service personnel never request or accept payment at a customer’s residence or business.
