Did you Know???
As a homeowner, you are responsible for the water and sewer service lines buried on your private property. A breakdown of these lines could happen without warning resulting in an unexpected and costly emergency repair. The lifespan of a service line depends on many factors including construction material, soil conditions and use, and the location, number, and species of nearby trees. While not typically covered by basic homeowners’ insurance, residents are encouraged to check with their current provider to find out what their coverage is in this area, and to arm themselves, with information such as deductible amounts and exclusions if the coverage is offered as an add-on. Residents may also consider coverage from an external service plan provider.
