Utility Line Protection Program Now Available to Residents
The City of Derby is introducing a new, optional 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 and water lines.
The Service Line Warranty program offers residents an affordable way to avoid the unexpected and often large expense involved with a sewer or water 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.
City of Derby residents will see offers for the sewer line warranty from SLWA in their mail boxes soon. The discounted cost for residents who choose to purchase the sewer warranty protection is $7.00 per month, and will cover sewer 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 Derby, and no public funds are used to promote the program. Offers from SLWA for the water line warranty will be coming in the spring.
SLWA provides a 24-hour repair hotline for its customers and uses only local, certified technicians. 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. For more information on this program or to enroll, please visit SLWA’s web site at www.SLWofA.com.
