Since drinking water and waste disposal are two cornerstones of a well-run society, claims against water service companies can be among the most horrific and life disrupting. Pollution and failure-to-supply claims can destroy the core financial reserves of a firm performing these vital services.
That’s why, when it comes to insurance protection, you need experts like Rex and his team at Bancorp Insurance to provide you with an all-encompassing package free of coverage gaps. In fact, Bancorp Insurance Water Pro staff is proud to be the lead insurer for privately owned Water & Sewer Districts in Oregon.
Our program includes:
The city of Portland found E. coli in its water supply in 2014. The city acted appropriately and sent boil notices to their 670,000 customers. Cleaning up the water supply and sending out the boil notices was the easy part. Now they get to deal with the unforeseen consequences. In fact, most water districts never even think beyond what happens after an E-coli contamination.
Remember people in the Portland area were not able to use their tap water for 3 or 4 days. What did that really mean? Hundreds and even thousands of businesses closed their doors because without clean water they cannot run their businesses. Restaurants and bars cannot wash vegetables in E-coli water, or serve anything with ice or water in it. If a local brewery used the E-coli water to make a fresh batch of beer the entire batch had to be pitched down the drain. Hairdressers, spas and even public pools closed their doors, no business can take a chance of the E-coli entering their businesses and sickening customers. Thousands of dollars of business income was lost because of the boil notice.
What about your water district, does your insurance cover you in case your district is sued for a 3rd party loss of business revenue due to a contamination of the water supply?
Good question one you should take the time to get an answer to. If you do not have a specialty insurance policy that is specifically written to cover the types of exposures that small water districts face you may not have this type of coverage. Water Pros water district insurance coverage provides coverage to your district to pay out 3rd party claims due to water contamination.
I know many of the smaller districts do not have large restaurants that they supply water to. But you could have a home brewer, hair stylist, or spa owner. You never know what type of small business is being run out of someone’s home. If a small home brewer is forced to dump two dozen kegs of beer down the drain he’s lost thousands of dollars in revenue and he’d going to look for ways to get reimbursed from the cause (contaminated water). Who will answer a mother’s rage when her children become ill from swimming in the local pool filled with E. coli water?
These types of claims happen every day. Want to make sure your water district has the coverage it needs? Call Rex 800-452-6826 ask him about Bancorp’s Water Pro protection policy.
