FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

April 16, 2010


SUBJECT: MSD FINANCING OF PRIVATE SEWER LINE REPLACEMENT

MSD is announcing a new program that will allow residential sanitary sewer customers to replace their broken or stopped up private sewer line on a monthly, interest free, payment plan. MSD will pay the replacement cost to the approved Master Plumber and will then bill the customer on monthly installments at zero interest. There are no extra payments for this service and it is not part of an insurance program. Any MSD residential sewer customer is eligible.

On Monday, April 19th, at 10:00 A.M. MSD will make a public announcement at a press conference in the MSD Board Room, located at 700 West Liberty Street, advising our residential customers that they can obtain two bids from an approved list of local, licensed master plumbers, submit those prices to MSD, and the lowest, best bid will be accepted. The contractor will then replace the old broken, clogged, or leaking private sewer line at the bid cost. MSD, in turn, will bill the customer in monthly increments, WITHOUT INTEREST, from one to three years, depending on the cost of the replacement. Please plan to attend for details.

This will accomplish two primary goals.

  1. It will tighten up a leaking sewer system, public and private.
  2. It will provide financial assistance to customers on fixed or lower incomes to replace a sewer line that probably has caused them sewer backups in the past.

This program is an extension of MSD financial assistance programs, such as:

  1. Financial assistance for new sewer assessments
  2. Free installation of sewer back flow prevention devices
  3. Discount of monthly sewer bills for customers 65 years or older who earn less than $35,000 annually

We have discussed this program with all local plumbing contractors and they are in full support.

This is a positive for all concerned. It helps meet consent decree obligations; it helps customers pay for a new sewer line over time at no interest; and, work will be performed by local, licensed plumbing contractors.
