Employees from the Borough of South River periodically read utility meters at residences and businesses. To assist you with identifying our meter readers and ensuring you are not allowing someone posing as a utility worker into your residence or business, please review the below photos and identifications or our current meter readers.
As a reminder, our meter readers and all other legitimate utility (water, sewer, cable, telephone, and electric) employees will all have proper identification and be willing to display it upon request. They will also be able to provide their supervisor’s phone number so you can verify their legitimacy.
If someone you believe to be posing as a utility employee comes to your residence, please contact the South River Police Department at 732-238-1000 or 9-1-1 immediately to report them. DO NOT WAIT TO CALL. Try to remember as much as possible about the description of the suspect(s) and any vehicles they may be utilizing. Be prepared to provide this information to the dispatcher when calling.
Any questions regarding South River's meter readers can be directed to the South River Utility Office at 732-257-1999, ext. 508 during their business hours.
