The Sewer and Water Insurance Plans (SWIP) is a plan initiated by Sandy Suburban Improvement District that covers the cost of repairing or replacing a damaged lateral sewer line, the small pipe that runs from your home to the main sewer collection line in the street. This has previously always been the complete responsibility of the homeowner. The program is provided at no additional cost to customers.

It’s a no-worry process. Simply call Sandy Suburban at 801-561-7662 to start the process. Sandy Suburban staff or a contractor will come to your home to inspect the lateral sewer line to first determine if it needs to be repaired, maintained or replaced. We will respond to any incident.

The SWIP plan is provided by a local insurance underwriter who provides a vetted, licensed contractor to complete the work needed. In most cases, a trenchless process is used in which it is not required to dig a line in the homeowner’s yard.
Just call the same number, 801-561-7662, and the contractor will ensure that the work required is finished to complete satisfaction.
