PipeER provides a loan to finance the replacement of a leaking residential water service line. Qualified customers are eligible to receive a loan up to $5,000. PipeER is administered by the WSSC Federal Credit Union (WSSC FCU) in partnership with WSSC Water. This loan program makes $100,000 available annually to customers in need of these emergency funds. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, each fiscal year until the fund is depleted. Any funds remaining on July 1 each year are donated to the Water Fund, which helps WSSC Water customers pay their water and sewer bills.
The WSSC FCU is responsible for underwriting and administering the loans under PipeER. Customers must meet the following criteria:
- A residential customer and owner of the property where the pipe replacement is taking place.
- Received a WSSC Water 30-day leak letter/notification.
- Received two quotes from WSSC Water licensed plumbers. A listing of registered licensed plumbers can be found at wsscwater.com/findplumber.
- Meet the WSSC FCU’s minimum underwriting standards to qualify.
Once approved, the loan amount will be sent directly to a WSSC Water licensed plumber. Any additional cost over the loan amount must be paid by the customer. For more information and to begin your application process, contact WSSC FCU at 240.459.8022 or online at wsscfcu.org/pipeER.
