Fix a Leak Week!!!
Did you know that water-wasting leaks could be putting a drain on your home's water use and utility costs? From March 19 through 25, 2018, celebrate the 10th annual Fix a Leak Week by finding and fixing household leaks, which can help save approximately 10 percent on your water bill. Even if you only have 10 minutes to spare, you can get started chasing down leaks and reducing water waste with a few simple tips.
The Egremont Water Department would like to announce its endorsement of the Service Sentinel water service line warranty program and introduce New England Service Company. This program is being offered by New England Service Company (NESC) either as a one-year or two-year plan.
The Service Sentinel Program is a maintenance plan that covers the water service line as well as the meter valve for repairs and replacement. Both of these items are the responsibility of the customer to maintain, however, a leak or break typically costs between $1,500 to $3,000 to repair or replace. This optional maintenance program is available to all of the Department's customers to protect themselves against this costly repair. This is not an insurance plan, and because of this there is no deductible to cover.
If you have interest you can find the application HERE
and terms and conditions HERE
or log onto the Service Sentinel page of the New England Service Company website HERE
As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 413-528-0182 extension 17.
