Pittsburgh, PA – Out of an abundance, of caution the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority will delay the start of the Microfiltration Plant (MFP) in Highland Park. This is due to a technical equipment issue identified during pre-startup testing.
Our staff and consultants are identifying the replacement equipment to address the issue while also working with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on modifications to our permit. These modifications will allow us to install the new equipment. Based on current progress, we anticipate a revised restart date to be within 30 days.
