The NLC Service Line Warranty Program (formerly known as Utility  Service Partners) partnered with the Southeast Energy Assistance Program in Atlanta, Georgia, to offer 40 water line warranties and 40 sewer line warranties for free to qualified local homeowners.

“The City of Atlanta was one of the first major cities in the United States to adopt our warranty program,” said Philip E. Riley, Jr., Chief Executive Officer. “We were thrilled to be able to give back to 80 homeowners with free warranty protection for their water and sewer lines.”

Qualified homeowners had to be enrolled with Southeast Energy Assistance group in Atlanta and have a qualified contractor perform an inspection of their line before acceptance. Once the inspection was complete, USP’s consumer brand, Service Line Warranties of America, enrolled the customer for up to one year of free service for repairs to their water and/or sewer line.

“We are very thankful to Utility Service Partners for their contributions to the homeowners in need in the City of Atlanta,” said Lila Blake, Executive SEA Director. “It’s great to see a company give back to a community where they do business.”
