In November 2019, Loyalist Township partnered with Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) to provide service line warranty for residents. Through SLWC, residents have the option to purchase coverage for damage to the buried water and sewer lines they are responsible for on their own property.

The diagram above shows the section of water service line that property owners in Loyalist Township are responsible for.

While many homeowners insurance policies will pay to repair the damage created by failed utility lines - such as sewer backup damage - not all insurance policies pay to repair the damage to the service line itself. We strongly recommend you check with your home insurer before purchasing any additional coverages through the optional SLWC plan.
We have prepared the attached notice to provide you with more information on the program.
