How much does it cost to fix these systems after a flood? Does insurance cover it?

I have a question (but can’t put it in the box because I’m a panelist). There’s understandably a lot of emphasis on on site systems because of their specific vulnerabilities, but I’m wondering the extent to which engineers and planners are thinking of different forms of municipal sewage systems particularly due to climate change? There are many cases of communities (I’m thinking of the Stewart Creek community in Charlotte) who have systematic issues with sewage back up and flooding on centralized systems. The engineered systems are increasingly failing particularly in lower lying areas, which tend to be lower income communities and communities of color.

Most homeowner's insurance does not cover "rising" water of any type. So a failed septic system that backs up into a home would be excluded. Home owners can add a rider to their insurance policy but it is expensive. Sometimes flood insurance is available subsidized through the National Flood Insurance Program if your community have adopted floodplain management mitigation programs
