water pumped under foundation of home at high pressure
we are currentley trying to deal with the ins. co. of the person (reprensenting our county water district) told NOT TO UNCAP A WATER LINE by my husband. (The water line was caped 20 years earlier because it ran under our foundation when the foundation for the home was being dug) It ran for about 20 min. full pressure. It surfaced in the complete lower level of our home at aprox. 5 in.deep ( lower level is aprox 2000 sq' ) comeing out the side of our brick home. It has been 6 mo. They do not want to pay. Other than $4000 to repair .. My goodness, we think it probably blasted a hole under the foundation. What a joke. And what about the mental duress of it all.. Any legal advice or has anyone experienced this?
