Utility insurance offered for water

MARQUETTE – The city of Marquette has been notified of an upcoming mailing from American Water Resources of Michigan, a subsidiary of American Water. This is a utility insurance service similar to those residents might have seen with their natural gas providers. The program is offered by AWR and is not a city activity or a city-initiated or endorsed program. Resident responsibilities for maintaining water and sewer laterals are outlined in Chapter 48 of the city code.
