Contractors Pollution Liability Insurance*

Contractors face numerous pollution risks associated with the construction site, including water or soil contamination from broken pipelines and leaking fuel storage tanks; water or air emissions from operations; spills of pollutants brought to the site; storm water runoff; and accidental utility strikes that could cause property damage and injure persons.

Because Commercial General Liability policies, even with a pollution coverage broadening endorsement, may not sufficiently cover pollution risks, many contractors purchase Contractors Pollution Liability insurance to help:

  • Protect assets from unforeseen environmental exposures that could have substantial impact on earnings
  • Satisfy bid requirements
  • Protect against unforeseen pollution hazards on the job site which may lead to bodily injury, property damage or pollution clean-up costs

Available to Travelers Commercial General Liability Construction Clients
