AWR mailing not endorsed by city

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 may have seen with their natural gas provider. The program is offered by AWR.

City officials want to stress that this is not a city activity, or otherwise a city-initiated or endorsed program. The city and its utilities department are not endorsing the program. Resident responsibilities for maintaining water and sewer laterals are outlined in Chapter 48 of the Marquette City Code.
