Utility line protection program now available to residents
MEDIA RELEASE – For immediate Release

(STILLWATER, OKLA / Sept. 17, 2012) – The City of Stillwater is introducing a new, optional program available to homeowners that provides low cost, worry-free warranty protection for water service 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 water 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 service line break.

“Many citizens are unaware that they are responsible for the water service lines that extends from the city water meter to their homes. If these lines break or leak, repairs can be very expensive,” said Anthony Daniel, director of Water Utilities. “We chose to participate in this program for several reasons including that it is offered at no cost to the city and it serves to educate our homeowners on their service line responsibilities while saving them money on repairs,” he said. “SLWA has a perfect Better Business Bureau Rating and uses local contractors who are familiar with the city permitting requirements and codes. This program could improve water conservation because we believe that residents will be more apt to quickly report any issues with their water service lines.”

Stillwater residents will see offers in their mail boxes soon. The cost for citizens who choose to purchase the warranty protection is $4.25 per month, and it will cover water service line repairs up to $4,000, plus an additional allowance of $500 for public sidewalk restoration, 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.”

Service Line Warranties of America is the brand used by the Utility Service Partners, Inc. family of companies. Headquartered in Canonsburg, Penn, It is one of the nation’s largest and most trusted sources of utility line warranties, serving residential customers since 1996. After a decade in business, SLWA has accreditation with the Better Business Bureau. SLWA is proud to partner with NLC to deliver this program. The National League of Cities is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities, and serves as a resource and advocate for about 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
