City wants residents to be aware of service line protection offer

With promotional and marketing letters arriving in local mailboxes this week, the City of Yuma wants residents to be aware of a service offering warranty protection.

Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) is offering the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program, including voluntary warranty plans for sewer lines to homeowners.

While the City of Yuma maintains lines in the City’s rights of way, homeowners are responsible for the service lines on their own property up to the point of connection with the City’s system. Repairs to these lines can be expensive, often costing thousands of dollars.

The warranty program provides up to $4,000 in coverage with an additional allowance if cuts are required on a public street or sidewalk. The NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers protection against normal wear and tear, which is not covered under most traditional homeowner policies. SLWA will repair broken, leaky or clogged lines using local, licensed contractors who are familiar with local code and can ensure a timely response.

Additionally, the program has no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles.

In addition to the benefits for homeowners, the City has elected to receive a royalty from SLWA which will provide a new source of revenue. This program is offered at no cost to the City and no public funds are used to promote or administer 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.
