Superior Water, Light & Power are warning their customers about a new scam targeting individuals and businesses.

Superior Water, Light & Power says that they will always send a written notice before service is disconnected and customers should not engage anyone requesting payment via phone.

If you think you are dealing with a suspicious call, the company says you should hang up right away and call their office at 715-394-2200. If it occurs after normal business hours, contact the police.
