American Water Expands Service Line Protection Program

Voorhees, N.J. -- American Water, a North American water services provider today announced the availability of its LineSaver ™ Service Line Protection Program to customers of the Trenton Water Works. Following a request for proposal, American Water Resources, Inc., a subsidiary of American Water, was selected by the City of Trenton to make the program available. The LineSaver program will be available to over 58,000 Trenton Water Works customers who reside in the City of Trenton and in the outlying municipalities of Hamilton, Ewing, Lawrence and Hopewell in Mercer County.
This program is designed to protect homeowners from the cost of unexpected service line repairs not covered by homeowner’s insurance. American Water says its goal is to provide a comprehensive service plan, from establishing a local contractor network and providing customer service to educating the community about service line ownership and responsibility. The program will rely on licensed, local Mercer County plumbers to perform the service line repair work.
In addition to managing the LineSaver program for Trenton Water Works, American Water Resources also offers its service line protection programs to hundreds of thousands of residents in 13 states, and its In-Home Plumbing Emergency Program to residents in ten states.
