Shippensburg borough residents and customers of Cumberland-Franklin Joint Municipal Authority will soon have access to insurance for their sewer lines.

“Many citizens are unaware that they are responsible for the sewer lines that go from their houses to the point of utility maintenance,” says Shippensburg Borough Manager Earl Parshall. “If these lines break or leak, repairs can be very expensive.”

The Service Line Warranty program, provided through the National League of Cities (NLC) Service Line Warranty Program administered by Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) provides low cost, worry-free warranty protection for sewer lines. The program offers public sewer ratepayers 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.

Shippensburg area residents (in the 17257 zip code area) will see offers in their mailboxes soon. The cost for citizens who choose to purchase the warranty protection is $5.95 per month and covers line repairs up to $4,000 plus an additional allowance of $4,000 for public street cutting, if needed.

“We are pleased to work with the Borough of Shippensburg 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 Shippensburg area residents will be pleased with our features and benefits, including a 24-hour repair hotline and the use of local, certified technicians. 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.
