Separate from its residential programs, American Water Resources also extends its service line protection programs to municipalities through partnerships in the LineSaver® program. LineSaver is a solution for service line repairs that are neither the responsibility of a municipality's water department, nor covered by homeowners' insurance. At no cost to the municipality, the company's experts will fully manage LineSaver, and take care of all requirements for developing and implementing the program — from establishing a local contractor network and providing customer service, to educating the community about service line ownership and responsibility. LineSaver enables municipalities to participate in making a valuable service available in their communities without investment or staffing increases.
