Water Service Line Repair Insurance

The Authority does not offer private water line repair insurance to our customers. However, the Authority has received inquiries from customers about the legitimacy of independent companies that do offer water line repair insurance. Although there are some very legitimate and reputable companies that do offer this type of insurance, the Authority urges all of its customers to thoroughly research the validity of each company through the Better Business Bureau, check with the Campbell County Department of Revenue to see if the company has a license to do business in Campbell County and check the company's references.

The number one question that most customers ask; is this type of insurance a good value. The Authority's position is that like most insurance, each customer must evaluate the risk. It is suggested that customers ask their plumber for an estimate to repair a water line leak and weigh the cost against the benefit provided by the insurance carrier.

Water Service and Meter Damages

Automated Meter Reading (AMR) technology has continued to advance and Campbell County Utilities and Service Authority (CCUSA) decided in 2006 to implement another phase in its technological vision by upgrading its AMR System.   These AMR meters are situated along roughly 182 miles of CCUSA owned water lines, many of which are located in rural areas and are difficult to access.

Caution: Tampering with a water meter is illegal and could result in fines and/or imprisonment.  Not only is this illegal which ultimately costs all CCUSA customers, but it could also create a cross connection with non-approved sources. (See our web site at www.ccusa-water.com to learn more about the Cross Connection Program)

Meter and/or service Damages – CCUSA is experiencing more damages caused by lawn mowing activities, especially with the meter transmitters which protrude through the meter box lid.  Generally the water service is located at the edge of private property.  It is positioned at this location to protect it (as much as possible) from traffic and other activities that could cause damage.  Please take responsibility to protect this device.  If you contract your mowing activities please advise the contractor of the meter location.  Damaging the meter and/or service box could cost you several hundred dollars to repair or replace. Always lift your mower deck (blades) or trim around the water meter box with a string trimmer.  Please contact the CCUSA office for more information, 434-239-8654.  Thank you in advance for your consideration and cooperation.
