Water service line coverage solicitations

Many Bloomington residents have already received a letter from one of several companies who are selling water service line protection coverage. The City recently received notification from American Water Resources of Minnesota, which, along with HomeServe, continue to mail their unsolicited informational material to Bloomington residents promoting their water service line coverage plan.

As in the past, the City of Bloomington has not partnered with these, or any other private water service maintenance providers.

Neither of these companies nor this type of coverage has been endorsed by the City of Bloomington or Hennepin County.

If you are considering purchasing this type of coverage for your property, the City strongly advises you to thoroughly research the need to do so and the background and track record of any company that offers this type of coverage.

For more information, contact the City of Bloomington Utilities Division at 952-563-8777.
