The Village of Decatur has partnered with the National League of Cities Service Line Program by HomeServe to offer our residents an optional service line protection plan.  As a homeowner, you are responsible for any maintenance and possible repairs to the water and sewer lines on your property. The NLC Service Line Warranty Program is a voluntary, cost effective program that our residents have the option to enroll in, and in turn could save you thousands of dollars on the high costs of repairing service lines. The NLC offers exceptional customer service, 24/7, 365 days a year. All work is completed in a timely manner by trusted, local, licensed contractors. For more information and to enroll in this program please visit www.slwofa.com or call 1-844-257-8795.
