The overall capacity of the water system improved overnight. PWSA added additional pumping capacity and increased water supply at the Highland 2 reservoir. Supply from the Highland 2 reservoir will provide water to the Lanpher reservoir service area north of the Allegheny River that is experiencing a leak. An additional pump is being added to the system to help overcome the water loss in the Lanpher service area.
PWSA is employing additional resources to help locate and identify the exact location of the leak. There is currently no risk to water quality or supply. PWSA will continue to keep customers informed of this issue as it progresses.
