Company Offers Water Line Protection in Illinois, Missouri
The American Water Works Company, Inc. has expanded its Water Line Protection Program to homeowners in areas of Illinois and Missouri.
Offered through American Water Resources, a subsidiary of American Water, the program provides homeowners with comprehensive protection for water line repairs that are not covered by homeowners' insurance or their water service provider.
"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 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.
The subsidiary provides a broad spectrum of service line protection programs to residential customers in 16 states, which covers leaks and breaks in water lines, as well as clogs or blockages in sewage lines running from the home to the street.
