Attention Customers: Clarification About Water Service Line Insurance

You may have received a letter from companies such as American Water Resources (AWR) or Home Emergency Service Company about your water and sewer line maintenance responsibility along with an offer for Water and Sewer Line Insurance. To clarify, these companies are not associated with Fairfax Water. They are private companies offering insurance associated with the water and sewer lines on your property. Fairfax Water does not offer this insurance and does not have a position on the need for this coverage. For more information about your water line responsibilities, visit www.fairfaxwater.org/customer/youplum.htm or call us at 703-689-5800, TTY 711.
