Recently, residents of the City of Auburn Hills have been receiving offers in the mail to insure their underground water service lines. This program covers the repair or replacement of a leaking or broken single underground water supply line outside your home that runs from the street to your home. While it is true this utility line is the homeowner's responsibility and repairs could be costly, the frequencies of these repairs are rare.
If this is a concern to residents, we are encouraging homeowners to contact their insurance company to determine their actual coverage. Any further questions can be directed to The Department of Public Works at (248) 391-3777.
