Customers of the City of Moline water supply may periodically receive mailed correspondence from private water line insurance providers outlining responsibilities and optional water line insurance programs sold by such companies. The City of Moline wishes to advise property owners that private water line insurance providers are not associated with the City of Moline.
For many years, the City of Moline has been and continues to be responsible for repair of the portion of water service lines that lie in public right of way. Property owners have been and continue to be responsible for repair of the portion of the water service lines that lie on private property. Property owners should evaluate and decide for themselves whether optional water line insurance would be appropriate and beneficial to the property. Information such as the age of the water service line and material of construction for individual properties may be obtained by contacting Greg Swanson, Utilities General Manager at 309-524-2301.
