Lewiston officials say waterline insurance not affiliated with city

The city of Lewiston is alerting residents that letters being mailed to homeowners by American Water Resources offering a waterline protection program are not affiliated in any way with the city, nor does the city endorse the insurance offering.

Lewiston officials say the letters are being received in several cities, and they appear to offer insurance on waterlines from the meter to the house itself.

Homeowners have always been responsible for that portion of their service, and it’s up to them to educate themselves as to whether it’s worth buying what appears to be an insurance policy.

Anyone with additional questions or concerns may contact the Lewiston public works department (208) 746-1316.
