To Our Customers: MAWC would like to respectfully notify you that property damage resulting from sewage backing up into your home is the responsibility of the homeowner, not the Authority.
Most insurance companies offer products to protect homeowners from a sewer backup. Protect yourself from a sewer backup by contacting your insurance agent.
Furthermore, there are mechanical devices (backflow preventers) designed to prevent sewage back-ups available for installation by licensed and insured plumbers.
We hope you will take the time to consider your risks and select any options you feel best protect your property.
