Several ratepayers have requested the District to look into the recent mailings they received in which an insurance carrier is trying to sell sewer lateral insurance. The line leaving your house is called a sewer lateral and its purpose is to transport your wastewater to our lines in the public roadway for proper collection and treatment. The one company that we know of is Home Service which appears to be a legitimate insurance company. The District is not endorsing Home Service nor any other subterranean utility insurance companies. Please check with your homeowner’s insurance carrier before signing a binding agreement.
