Program offers homeowners protection for water line repairs
American Water Works Co. Inc. announced the expansion of the Water Line Protection Program to homeowners in additional communities in Arizona, Kentucky, Maryland, New York and West Virginia.
Offered through American Water Resources Inc., a subsidiary of American Water, the Water Line Protection Program provides homeowners with comprehensive protection for water line repairs that are not covered by homeowners’ insurance or water service providers.
“Many homeowners are unaware of their potential liabilities relating to repairs of the water line they own on their property,” said Sharon Cameron, president of American Water Resources. “We are pleased to offer this program in additional communities to help protect homeowners from the high cost of those repairs.”
The Water Line Protection Program provides homeowners with coverage for water line emergencies, including the dispatching of a qualified local contractor for repairs, basic site restoration and 24/7 customer service. Protection starts at $5 per month and covers up to $5,000 in repairs.
Residents in the communities where this service will now be offered will receive information by mail on or around Oct. 4.
