Residential property owners are responsible for the water service and sewer lines on their private property. Optional Exterior Water Service Line, Exterior Sewer Line and Interior Plumbing & Drainage Coverage plans from SLWC can help protect ND homeowners from potentially expensive repair costs due to breakdowns of major systems inside and/or outside their homes. 

Participation is optional and voluntary for homeowners in ND and it is not a ND program. SLWC and ND will not go door-to-door or call residents to market these optional warranty plans. SLWC is solely responsible for the administration and service of the warranty programs. A homeowner who chooses to enroll in this program should do so with the knowledge that ND in no way warrants or is liable for the work or performance of SLWC. 

Coverage Plans Available

  • Exterior Water Service Line Coverage: Covers the cost of repairing broken or leaking outside water lines.
  • Exterior Sewer/Septic Line Coverage: Covers the cost of repairing broken, leaking or clogged outside sewer/septic lines. 
  • Interior Plumbing & Drainage Coverage: Covers the cost of broken or leaking water or sewer lines inside the house, including drain lines connected to the main sewer stack. This does not cover faucets or fixtures, venting issues or gas lines.
