Water Service Line Insurance Mailing
It has come to our attention that a mailing was sent to Scarsdale Residents regarding insurance for household water service lines. This company has no relationship with the Village and the Village is not involved in any manner with this solicitation. Also please note that the Village is responsible for repair of the service line from the street (water main) connection to the curb stop (shut off valve) near the curb, the homeowner is only responsible for a leak between the curb stop and the house.
