Reporting Water Problems

Sewer Backup Insurance Coverage

Did you know that damage resulting from sewer line backups is not covered by most property insurance? The only way to protect your home or business from such damage is to have coverage added to your policy by endorsement. This is not to be confused with flood insurance coverage. The Town of Benson is not responsible for any damage caused by blocked sewer lines and drains.

More Information

For more information about the treatment process or to tour the facilities, contact the Waste Water Treatment Plant at 919-894-2373.
