Public Advisory: Water and Sewer Insurance Offer

Montgomery County Environmental Services is issuing a public advisory to notify Montgomery County water/sewer customers about letters being sent from American Water Resources, Inc., a company that offers insurance coverage for private plumbing, and private water and sewer lines.

American Water Resources does not represent and is not affiliated in any way with Montgomery County Environmental Services. Letters sent by American Water Resources are not approved or sponsored by Montgomery County Environmental Services.

Property owners are responsible for maintaining water service from the curb stop to their home or business. If a break occurs in this area, repairs are the responsibility of the property owner. In addition, property owners are responsible for maintaining sewer service from the mainline sanitary sewer to their home or business. If a sewer blockage or break occurs in this area, repairs are the responsibility of the property owner.

Montgomery County Environmental Services encourages property owners to learn more about their responsibilities for maintaining and repairing water and/or sewer service, and to carefully review any water and/or sewer insurance coverage offers.

Montgomery County Environmental Services does not offer insurance for water and/or sewer customers; however, the department does offer a Foundation Drain Disconnect Program, which provides financial assistance to help property owners protect themselves against basement flooding problems. More information is available at www.mcohio.org/services/water/drain_disconnect.html.

Montgomery County water and/or sewer customers should contact Customer Service at (937) 781-2688 with any questions or concerns regarding letters from American Water Resources, Inc.

For media inquiries, please contact Brianna Wooten, Communications Coordinator, at (937) 781-2532.
