FRAUD ALERT

The Chester Metropolitan District was informed by a customer this morning of a new potential scam we believe to be targeting businesses in the Chester County Area. We believe these people are attempting to collect personal banking information using Chester Metropolitan District’s name.

Our customer’s business received a telephone call late yesterday afternoon regarding a returned check, and was given a long-distance call-back number. When the customer returned the call at 5:30 last night, she was told her check to Chester Metropolitan had been returned because of a “smudged routing number”, and the telephone attendant demanded she offer updated account information to clear the debt immediately or water service would be terminated at her place of business. She suggested that this may be a “scam”, and the attendant became angry and disconnected the call.

The Chester Metropolitan District would like all of its customers to be aware of this issue and to know that we would never handle an account this way. If you or someone you know receives a telephone call such as this, please hang up immediately and call our office to confirm your payment status. We also suggest contacting your bank to confirm your account has not been compromised.

If you believe you may be a victim of this program, please notify CMD, your bank, and the police as soon as possible. Be sure to make note of any names and telephone numbers which may have been involved.

Finally, we would like our customers to be aware of the following:

  • CMD does not place telephone calls for returned checks. Customers whose checks have been returned will be notified by mail.
  • We do not immediately disconnect service for a returned check unless the check is returned with an “Account Closed” notation. A return for insufficient funds or incorrect/illegible information will be given up to five (5) days to correct the error before disconnection occurs.
  • All CMD telephone numbers are local numbers and will begin with either a 385, 581, or 377 prefix.
  • Just as we are not able to give account information over the telephone, we currently do not request banking information over the telephone. Chester Metropolitan District does not use a collections agency.
  • CMD does not disconnect service for non-payment after 5:00 PM. All service disconnections for non-payment are handled during our regular business hours.
  • You do not have to dial a different telephone number after 5:00 PM to reach our answering service. Our main telephone number works twenty-four hours a day.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office at (803) 385-5123.

CW-DMAG Declares Stage 1 Drought

News Release

July 20, 2015

Drought Management Advisory Group

Continued Hot Weather and Low Rainfall Puts Catawba-Wateree Basin in Stage 1 of Drought Protocol

Community Reminded to Conserve

The Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group (CW-DMAG) today announced continued dry weather conditions and above-average temperatures have placed the Catawba-Wateree River Basin in Stage 1 of the Low Inflow Protocol (LIP).

Stage 1 is the second of five drought stages outlined in the LIP and recommends voluntary water conservation by water users across the Basin, in addition to operational adjustments by Duke Energy. The LIP is the drought management plan major water users in the region employ to share responsibility and set priorities to conserve the limited water supply during drought conditions.

“While some areas of the Basin have received scattered rainfall, the lack of widespread precipitation the past several weeks and high temperatures have resulted in increased drought conditions,” said Ed Bruce, P.E., Duke Energy, CW-DMAG coordinator. “We are asking the community to conserve water and energy as we enter the height of the summer season and the typically drier fall period.”

Continued below normal rainfall and very hot temperatures have pushed two of the three LIP drought indicators (triggers) into Stage 1. Water storage in the 11-reservoir Catawba-Wateree Hydroelectric Project continues to decline and streamflows feeding the reservoirs are well below normal. In addition, the U.S. Drought Monitor trigger indicates most of the Basin is experiencing drought conditions.

Earlier this month, the Catawba-Wateree River Basin entered Stage 0 of the LIP which is a drought watch stage and prompted the CW-DMAG to closely monitor conditions. After observing declining trends in the triggers, the group decided to proactively declare Stage 1 conditions.

“We wanted to be proactive in making the community aware of increased drought conditions and ask customers to be mindful of water use,” explained Barry McKinnon, Mooresville Public Utilities Director. “The sooner we start conserving, the better for our region as we work together to preserve our shared water resources.”

The CW-DMAG will continue monitoring the drought conditions and work collectively to protect the water supply and other uses of the Catawba-Wateree River.

The Catawba-Wateree Drought Management Advisory Group (CW-DMAG) was established in 2006 to monitor drought status and to recommend coordinated actions for the CW-DMAG members. CW-DMAG members include the area’s public water suppliers and several large industries withdrawing water from the Catawba-Wateree River and lake system, North Carolina, South Carolina and federal resource agencies and Duke Energy. The CW-DMAG and the LIP are outcomes of Duke Energy’s relicensing process for the Catawba-Wateree Hydroelectric Project. The LIP will become part of Duke Energy’s New License which is expected to be issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) later this year. The CW-DMAG meets at least monthly when conditions reach Stage 0 or greater of the LIP. For more information about the CW-DMAG and the LIP, visit www.duke-energy.com/lakes/cwdmag.asp.
