Goderich Water & Sewer Protection Explained

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

All Goderich residents received notices about the program which is aimed only at property owners

As Goderich property owners decide whether or not to purchase insurance against water and sewer connection breaks, some are wondering how a private-sector company got their addresses.

Cincinnati-based Service Line Warranties is offering water and sewer connection policies under an agreement they signed with the town last year.

Within the past couple of weeks, residents have received a mailout about the policies, whether they own their property or rent it.

Town Clerk Janice Hallahan says the addresses were obtained by Service Line from a third-party entity called Info Group Canada.

She adds the Town's only role in the addressing, was to confirm the recipients' postal codes.

Goderich is the 51st Ontario municipality to sign onto the insurance plan, which protects property owners from breaks in water and sewer connecting lines on their properties.
