Sewer Insurance / Backups
Available and Affordable Insurance
Sewer backups can be costly, but sewer backup insurance is not. All insurance companies writing homeowner policies in Virginia offer special coverage for damage resulting from backups of drains and sewers, and this additional protection is available at very reasonable rates. For information on obtaining sewer backup coverage, contact your insurance company.

Dominion Virginia Power offers a version of sewer line repair insurance within their home repair programs.  Visit their website for further details.  
Claims Approved Only if Negligence is Shown
The Town's insurance carrier rarely approves claims resulting from sewer backups unless negligence in maintaining the system can be shown. Therefore, residents are encouraged to protect their property by obtaining sewer backup insurance.
