While passing affordability measures, PWSA plans to raise rates to fund infrastructure spending

The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority attempted to reconcile the competing demands of affordability and improvement at its bi-weekly board meeting Thursday morning.

 

To meet an order from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the PWSA board passed a resolution for emergency procurement of resources to execute three new infrastructure projects. The projects include upgrades to an older reservoir due to concerns that holes in the cover could lead to contamination from animal droppings.  Those concerns led to a precautionary boil advisory for 18,000 homes in August.
