Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Who is SLWC?
SLWC is an independent company, separate from your local utility or community. SLWC Plans are available in over 70 municipalities across Canada.
Why did Provost partner with SLWC?
There are several benefits the voluntary SLWC program brings to Provost and its residents, including:
Educating residential property owners about their responsibilities for the maintenance, repair and replacement of water service and sewer lines (portion from their homes to the property line) – at no cost to the Town of Provost.
Assuring the Town of Provost that all repairs are performed to code and that all appropriate permitting is pulled.
- Reducing expense to property owners and the Town of Provost because the service plans encourage residents to report exterior water service and sewer/septic leaks in a timely manner. Timely exterior water service line repairs conserve water and reduce water loss for the Town. Timely sewer/septic line repairs also minimize wastewater pollution, helping the environment.
Resulting in fewer calls and involvement of Town of Provost personnel regarding infrastructure that is the responsibility of property owners saves overall taxpayers money.
