The Portland Water District contracts with HomeServe USA
Corporation to provide warranty programs that cover water lines,
septic/sewer lines, and internal plumbing.
For only $5.49 a month, the water service line warranty program will protect residential customers
against unexpected service line leaks and breaks. For another $7.99, septic lines can also be protected.
The interior plumbing protection is $9.99.
While the Portland Water District owns and maintains the water
mains and service lines in the street and public way, customers
own the service lines on their property. If a privately-owned
service line springs a leak, the customer is responsible for
fixing the problem. Service line repairs can cost up to $2,300. If protected by the warranty programs,
customers make one call and HomeServe USA will locate a
qualified plumber to fix the problem and will settle the bill
To sign up for the warranty program or to learn more, contact
