Utility Line Protection Program Now Available To Residents
updated: Wednesday, March 19, 2014
The City of St. Louis Park is introducing a new, optional program available to homeowners that provides low cost, worry-free warranty protection for sewer lines. The program is provided through the National League of Cities (NLC) and administered by Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA).
The NLC Service Line Warranty program offers citizens an affordable way to avoid the unexpected and often large expense involved with a sewer 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 St. Louis Park residents will see offers in their mailboxes soon. The warranty will cover sewer line repairs up to $6,000 plus an additional allowance of $4,000 for public street cutting, if needed. The program is offered at no cost to the City of St. Louis Park and no public funds are used to promote the program.
For questions about this service, or to enroll, please contact Service Line Warranties of America at 866-922-9006 or visit www.slwofa.com.
Also, the NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers homeowners the option to purchase low-cost warranties for cleaning, repairs, or replacement of broken or leaking water service lines of up to $4,000, or more, per occurrence. Approximate homeowner costs will likely range from $6 to $9 per line per month – specific rates are determined for each city’s particular situation based on local infrastructure and policies.
The NLC Service Line Warranty Program provides residents a warranty for a service line cleaning, repair, or replacement for monthly fee, with no deductibles or service fees. This work is performed by licensed, local contractors who are to return customer calls within one hour of a claim being filed. USP provides a personally staffed 24/7 hotline for residents, 365 days a year.
