PWSA Lifts Flush and Boil Advisory for Borough of Millvale

Pittsburgh, PA – Effective immediately, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) received confirmation from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) that the flush and boil water advisory impacting residents in the Borough of Millvale is lifted. Customers are no longer required to boil tap water before consumption.


“The residents and officials in Millvale have been extremely patient and helpful as we worked through this boil water advisory, and we are grateful for their cooperation. Our main goal at PWSA is, and will always be, providing safe drinking water to our customers,” said PWSA Interim Executive Director Robert Weimar.


“We would like to thank the Borough of Millvale and public safety officials for their coordination and assistance as we rectified this issue,” said Weimar.


“We acknowledge there is much work to do to fix our aging and deteriorating infrastructure to rebuild our water supply and distribution system. With approval of our Capital Budget Proposal by the PWSA Board, we are actively implementing projects as quickly and efficiently as possible,” said Weimar.


PWSA is beginning work to make the necessary repairs to the Lanpher Reservoir and is making necessary inspections to ensure the integrity of reservoirs throughout the entire service area.
