Did you know that you own the water service from your property line into your home? As the owner of property, you are responsible for the repair and maintenance of your water service from the street into your home. Until a problem occurs, you may not realize that you could incur thousands of dollars in repair costs.
Homeowner's Insurance isn't the answer. Most homeowner's insurance policies do not cover the cost of repairing or replacing water service lines and, even if it did, there's typically a large deductible that must be paid first. Now there is a simple way to avoid costly repairs in your water service line. The Harwich Water Department offers a Service Tight Protection Plan which would cover the costs of repairs to your water line in the event of a sudden leak.
You can have guaranteed peace of mind for as little as $68 per year! Enroll into the Service Tight Protection Plan (here after referred to as "Service Tight") and the Harwich Water Department will provide complete coverage for the repair and/or replacement of your leaking water service connection from the property line to your shut off valve in the basement. If you have a leak from your water service, just call us and we will handle everything - for as little as $68 per year. Our authorized service staff will be dispatched to your home to take care of the problem.
Enrollment: Enrolling in the Service Tight plan is easy. The plan costs $68 per meter/year for water lines that are 2" and under in diameter. You can enroll now online or contact the Water Department by calling 508-432-0304. The enrollment waiting period is 90 days from the request date. Once your enrollment request is accepted and you become a member of Service Tight plan, the annual fee will be prorated to the nearest billing period and then the full $68 will be added to the Spring/Fall water bill (whichever is closest to the acceptance date).
