Update: Spring Hill-City View Precautionary Flush and Boil Water Advisory Lifted
No Evidence of Contamination Found in Two Rounds of Testing
Pittsburgh, PA - Water quality tests collected over the past two days did not detect evidence of contamination. The flush and boil water advisory for Spring Hill-City View is no longer in effect. Impacted customers who haven't used their water are encouraged to run their taps for at least one minute before drinking.
Portions of the Spring Hill neighborhood in the City of Pittsburgh experienced low and no water pressure beginning at approximately 5 a.m. on September 6th. The temporary loss of pressure was caused by work performed by PWSA crews to repair a leaking valve and water line on Buente Street. Pressure was restored to impacted customers by 8 a.m. on September 6th.
Two rounds of water quality tests did not detect evidence of contamination. The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority apologizes for inconvenience caused by this precautionary measure.
When there is an extended decrease in pressure from a water outage, there is a chance contaminants may enter the impacted area of the drinking water system. Out of an abundance of caution, PWSA issued a precautionary flush and boil water advisory to a limited area of approximately 900 households in the Spring Hill-City View neighborhood.
