American Water Resources and Georgetown County Water and Sewer District Launch Service Line Protection Programs for Homeowners

VOORHEES, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American
Water Resources
and Georgetown
County
Water and Sewer District today launched their official
partnership to offer Service Line Protection Programs to Georgetown,
S.C. homeowners. As the exclusive provider of Service Line Protection
Programs for Georgetown County, American Water Resources aims to educate
homeowners on their responsibilities regarding water and sewer lines
while offering peace of mind protection for homeowners against
potentially expensive repairs.

The Service Line Protection Programs being offered include:

  • Water Line Protection Program
  • Sewer Line Protection Program
  • In-Home Plumbing Protection Program

These affordable programs provide customers a way to pay for repairs to
water and sewer service lines not typically covered under homeowners’
insurance or standard home warranties.

“We are excited to partner with American Water Resources to provide our
customers an affordable and easy way to protect themselves from
unexpected service line repairs,” said Raymond Gagnon, P.E., executive
director at Georgetown County Water and Sewer District. “Through this
program, eligible Georgetown County homeowners will now have access to
American Water Resources’ protection programs, which can help provide
peace of mind if a service line problem occurs.”

“We are honored to partner with Georgetown County Water and Sewer
District to offer this customized protection program to its customers,”
said Malcolm Conner, president of American Water Resources. “Through our
protection programs, homeowners now have the ability to help safeguard
themselves from the financial demands and stress that occur when they
experience a water or sewer line problem. Replacing these lines can cost
thousands of dollars. American Water Resources provides a convenient and
reliable solution.”

American Water Resources manages the Service Line Protection Programs –
establishing a local contractor network and managing all claims. Program
participants will receive 24-hour support via a toll-free hotline and a
one-year warranty on all covered repairs with no forms to submit and no
deductibles.

Details about these programs and how to enroll will be arriving in the
mail for eligible homeowners starting the week of May 30, 2016.
