PWSA will perform a test shut on the 60-inch water main connecting the Aspinwall treatment plant to the Lanpher reservoir this afternoon at approximately 3 pm. The test shut will assist with isolating the leak and preparing for repairs scheduled on Monday, February 20, 2017. As a precaution, PWSA is coordinating with the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County Emergency Operations Center to monitor the work and prepare for any potential issues.
No impact to water service or water quality is anticipated during this test shut. PWSA will continue to provide updates to the public as the repair proceeds.
