Utility Line Protection Program Now Available To Residents
(STILLWATER, OKLA. / May 22, 2012) — The City of Stillwater is introducing a new program available to homeowners, provided through the National League of Cities (NLC) Service Line Warranty Program administered by Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA). The Service Line Warranty program provides low cost, worry-free warranty protection for sewer service lines.
“Many citizens are unaware that they are responsible for the sewer service lines that go from their houses to the point of main line connection. If these service lines break or leak, repairs can be very expensive,” said Anthony Daniel, director of Water Utilities. The Service Line Warranty program offers citizens an affordable way to avoid the unexpected and often large expense involved with a sewer service line break. When a line breaks, the cost to repair it can often cause hardship on a family’s budget. This new program will offer warranty protection to help cover the costs of a break.
Stillwater residents will receive offers in their mail boxes soon. The cost for citizens who choose to purchase the warranty protection is $5.50 per month, and will cover sewer service line repairs up to $4,000 plus an additional allowance of $4,000 for public street cutting, if needed. The program is offered at no cost to the City of Stillwater, and no public funds are used to promote this program.
“We are pleased to work with the City of Stillwater to offer homeowners an affordable Service Line Warranty program,” said Brad Carmichael, Vice President of Business Development for Service Line Warranties of America. “We think Stillwater residents will be pleased with our features and benefits, including a 24-hour repair hotline and the use of local, licensed plumbers. This keeps dollars in the local economy, an important benefit in these tough financial times.”
SLWA is proud to have been selected by the NLC as an Enterprise Programs Partner. The National League of Cities, representing over 218 million Americans, is the nation’s oldest and largest organization devoted to strengthening and promoting cities as centers of opportunity, leadership and governance. After a decade in business, SLWA has accreditation with the Better Business Bureau.
