PWSA preparing to expand its lead line replacement on Mount

The Mount Washington Community Development Corporation kicked off its May public forum will a presentation from Daniel Duffy and Rachael Rampa concerning the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority’s (PWSA) Lead Service Line Replacement Program.

Mr. Duffy explained the program started last year as a result of the water system exceeding overall lead levels throughout the service area. Once that happened, it triggered a requirement from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to replace a certain number of lead lines on an annual basis until the lead levels in the system were below limits.
