Water and Sewer Lines: Do They Need Insurance?

You may have recently received a direct mail solicitation from one of the various companies offering Water and/or Sewer Service Line Insurance Coverage. Understandably, these letters have sparked a number of calls from concerned citizens with questions ranging from what are the customer's responsibility for service lines to what is the likelihood of a service line failing.

While Evergreen Metro District cannot advise anyone on the need for this insurance coverage, we do offer the following information to help interested citizens assess if the cost of the premium is a good investment:

Water Service Lines (waterline from the water meter or outside shut-off valve to the building)
The property owner of a building is responsible for the water service line and the water line throughout the home starting with the water meter pit near the street. In some newer sections of town, where the meter is located inside the home, the owner’s responsibility starts at the curb stop or property line.  The District is responsible for the service line from the meter pit or curb box to the water main in the street. Most water service lines are heavier gauge copper, with a life expectancy of at least 75 years.  

Sewer Service Lines (sewer line from the sewer main to the building)
The sanitary sewer service line is also the responsibility of the owner. This includes the portion of the service line under the sidewalk and street up to the connection to the District’s sewer main

The most common problem with a sewer service line is a build-up of grease or the intrusion of roots.  If you sometimes experience a backup in your sewer service line, a routine maintenance program may be beneficial to prevent an unexpected backup problem.
Before enrolling in any warranty service, residents should check with a local, trusted plumber about what types of problems could occur to their outside pipe lines and how likely they might occur.


Always read and understand a contract before signing. There may be exclusions which limit the types of repairs or the dollar amount for repairs.

If you would like additional information on your service lines please call our Administrative Office at 303-674-4112 or email your request to recept@evergreenmetrodistrict.com
