Maryland Partnerships

Maryland is the land of crabs, the Chesapeake Bay, the U.S. Naval Academy, and so much more. But it shares one thing with every other state… aging infrastructure that can lead to unforeseen damages to service lines for residents. That’s why so many communities throughout Maryland have turned to the NLC Service Line Program by HomeServe to helpa their residents in their times of need.

Most homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the water and sewer lines from the street to their meter, and are shocked to find they must pay to repair damage caused by age, tree roots, and other issues. Planning ahead and having a warranty program in place to cover these costs can make all the difference when an unexpected emergency occurs.

In fact, in Maryland we have:

  • A Partnership with the Maryland Municipal League;
  • 24 Municipal and Water Utility Partners;
  • Over 200,000 Active Water-Related Protection Plans;
  • Saved homeowners in your state over $18.5 million in water-related costs since 2017.

Nationally, we completed over 2.2 million jobs over the past three years.

Large City Panel (Cleveland, Baltimore, and Mesa)

Panel Discussion About Aging Infrastructure Pt. 1

Baltimore City is nearly 300 years old and encompasses 92 square miles, more than 620,000 residents, and countless icons – the Inner Harbor, Mount Vernon, Fort McHenry, the home of the Preakness Stakes, Camden Yards, and Johns Hopkins University – but with its wealth of history comes an aging water and sewer infrastructure.

Portions of the water infrastructure date back to the Baltimore Water Company, the first water company established in the country. Major expansions and improvements to the system were made until the 1960s, but many water lines are decades old. Miles of downtown sewers were built 100 years ago, after 70 city blocks were flattened by the fire of 1904.
