PWSA crews have identified the location of the leak impacting the Lanpher reservoir that serves areas north of the Allegheny River. The leak is on a 60" water main connecting the Aspinwall treatment plant to the Lanpher reservoir. Flow from the leak was previously undetected because it is flowing into a large sewer and a stream that discharges into the Allegheny River.
PWSA crews and contractors are mobilizing to excavate the site, identify the extent of the break, and begin repairs. No customers are expected to be impacted by the repair at this time. PWSA will continue to provide updates to the public as the repair proceeds.
