CANONSBURG, Pa., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Utility Service Partners, Inc.

The NLC Service Line Warranty Program provides affordable utility service line warranties to homeowners covering expensive repairs to external water and sewer lines on homeowners' property. The program offers 24 hour/7 day a week utility service line protection.

"USP has demonstrated a commitment to excellence in customer service and a strong sense of community responsibility, core to the values of NLC, which is why over 140 cities have signed-up to participate in the first 20 months of the program. We are delighted to extend our relationship, ensuring our members have continued access to this valuable program", said Don Borut, Executive Director, NLC.

The NLC Service Line Warranty Program benefits homeowners by providing a solution to help with the financial burden of unexpected utility line repair and replacement costs, but the city enjoys other benefits as well. There is no cost for the city to participate and because USP uses only trusted, local contractors to perform repairs, dollars are kept in the local economy.

Cities and towns from Rolfe, IA (population 566) to Atlanta, GA (population 540,922) and Milwaukee, WI (population 594,833) have already brought this important coverage to their residents.

"We are happy to have this opportunity to continue our relationship with NLC", said Phil Riley, President and CEO of USP, "and to provide warranty management solutions to cities and utilities across the United States. We believe we have built a record of trust and integrity with both NLC and our partner cities, and look forward to an exciting future of growth."
