Potential damage to homes from flooding

Flooding can cause damage to homes directly by flood water entering your home and indirectly by  flood water entering the sanitary sewer that connects your home's plumbing to the Village's sewer main. 

YOU are liable for the costs of such damage.

Most homeowners insurance does NOT cover either damage unless you have optional flood insurance and optional sanitary back up insurance. 

Consider contacting your homeowners insurance carrier to discuss further.
