City of Aztec endorses Water/Sewer Service Line Warranty Program

Your City Commission wanted to share the results of the National League of Cities research with its homeowners. So, letters were mailed out by Service Line Warranties of America(SLWA) for the sole purpose of providing program information. Homeowners who wish to learn more about this program or want to enroll are encouraged to contact SLWA directly at the number provided in your letter. Homeowners who are not interested in these services may disregard the letter entirely. In these difficult economic times, the City Commission felt it was important to educate residents that they are responsible for the service lines on their property and to also inform you that there was a program offered through a reputable company that could potentially save you a lot of money. To find out more about this program, please visit SLWA's website at or call them directly at 1-866-922-9006.

Use of Disposable Wipes

The Public Works Department is having huge issues clearing sewer lines that have been plugged with disposable baby wipes. When flushed down toilets, the wipes get hung up on pipe irregularities and form clogs that cause costly sewer backups. We are being forced to use more sophisticated sewer cleaning techniques which are potentially very harmful to some of the city's older sewer pipes. These sewer cleaning efforts are not only causing thousands of dollars in extra work for Public Works employees but could cause damage to the sewer lines. Aztec Public Works implores Aztec residents to be responsible and discard wipes properly. Extra and frequent sewer cleaning activities cause increased manpower, equipment and repairs which in turn raise taxes and sewer fees. Please help us by disposing of your wipes in the trash - not in the toilet.

Remember Me Bricks

Aztec High School graduates have the opportunity to purchase a 4-inch by 8-inch brick and have it custom engraved and then built into a permanent structure at one of the City's parks. Location will be determined by the City of Aztec and will be dependent upon scheduled park improvements and/or projects. For examples, visit Tiger Park kiosks or Riverside Park bridge stage.
