 The DPW has received several reports from Milton residents stating that they had received
a solicitation from a company selling insurance for water service maintenance and repair.

This company has no affiliation with the Milton DPW!
There solicitation activities are not considered suspicious, at this time.
However, by their solicitation, they are seeking payment for periodic payments to secure their contract “insurance” and the contract
and payments automatically renew.

FYI – The Town itself is responsible for the cost of maintenance and repair of your water line from the connection at the water main to the
shutoff valve (typically near the sidewalk). You, as the homeowner are responsible for the cost of maintenance and repair of your water line from the shutoff valve (near the sidewalk)
up to the water meter in your basement. Insurance for repairs may be costly and not needed.
