Sewer line protection program now available in Casper

The City of Casper is introducing a new, optional program available to homeowners that provides low cost 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. “Many citizens are unaware that they’re responsible for the maintenance and repair of the entire sewer service line, from the house all the way to the city’s sewer main line in the street or alley, including portions that go under the street or alley. If these lines break or leak, repairs can be very expensive,” said Zulima Lopez, utility supervisor.

The city of Casper is working with SLWA to give homeowners an opportunity to opt into a warranty program for their sewer lines. “SLWA has a perfect Better Business Bureau Rating and only uses local contractors who’re familiar with local permitting and codes. This program could improve both water conservation and ground pollution, too, because we believe that residents will be more apt to quickly report any issues with their utility service lines,” said Lopez.

City of Casper residents will see offers in their mailboxes soon. The cost to purchase the warranty protection ranges from $58 per year to $6 per month based on eligible discounts 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 Casper and no public funds are used to promote the program.

For more information about the SLWA program, call Hayley Martin at 724-749-1042, or go to www.SLWofA.com.
