Be Wary of Offers to Insure Your Water Line

The East Grand Forks Water and Light is asking residents to be wary of letters a Connecticut company is sending to homeowners urging them to purchase private “water service line” insurance.  The utility has received several complaints about the letters, which the company — HomeServe — has been sending to homeowners in East Grand Forks and possibly other areas.

Although the information presented in the letters is factual — homeowners are responsible for repairs to the water lines that connect their home’s plumbing to a water main — the EGF Water and Light is not affiliated with HomeServe and does not support or oppose its services.

We urge residents to be cautious, because while a homeowner could purchase the insurance, the chance a homeowner will have to make a major repair to their water service line is pretty low.  Property owners are urged to read the fine print of the proposed coverage and determine if the long-term costs warrant such coverage.

You Can Help Your Neighbors Out This Winter By Giving To HeatShare

is a voluntary program of the Salvation Army and sponsored by the East Grand Forks Water and Light Department.  It is designed to assist those in need with heating bills during the winter season and all donations remain in the community to help our friends and neighbors.

When you give to HeatShare, you are helping warm the lives of the elderly, disabled and others in our community who have nowhere else to turn.  HeatShare is a last resort for many who have no other resources available to safely get them and their families through the winter. 

You can help give the gift of heat by sending a tax deductible contribution to East Grand Forks Water and Light using the downloadable form available here
HeatShare Donation Form     (Please make checks payable to HeatShare.)
