“SLW of America has done exactly what they claim and we have heard nothing but praise from our citizens for the program. The benefit for our City Sewer Department is fewer call-outs; because the homeowners’ failing service lines are finally getting fixed. Local plumbers embraced the program and I have heard nothing but positive comments from them. I whole-heartedly endorse the NLC-USP program and feel it will continue to be a valuable approach to proactively addressing the problem of decaying water and sewer infrastructure.”

Michelle Duff City Clerk Thornton, LA

“Many of our residents are income restricted and the cost to repair a service line could be devastating, and the City wanted the residents to have a low cost option for such repairs. The City’s decision was made through the experience of other communities with SLWA. All input was positive! As the City Clerk, I personally have heard from a handful of citizens that participate in the warranty program and have used the warranty for repairs. All have given positive feedback from their experience.”
