Water and Sewer line Repair Warranty/ Insurance

Over the past several years, various companies have sent out letters to residential homes offering a repair warranty covering the water and sewer service lines to the property. Although the solicitation is legal and it is true that homeowners are responsible for the water and sewer service lines from the road right-a-way  to the home, it is rare for these service lines to fail requiring repair or replacement. Over time, sewer service lines may require some type of maintenance such as cleaning or root cutting; however, the failure of a water service line from the road right-a-way to the home is very rare and almost none existent. Please Note: Repairs to the water and sewer service lines within the road right-a-way are covered by the Township and are not an expense to the homeowner.

If you have any questions regarding the water or sewer lines to your home, please feel free to contact the Department of Public Services at (989) 791-9870.
