Since 2016, PWSA has replaced more than 8,800 public lead service lines. This video highlights our progress and our commitment to removing all lead service lines from Pittsburgh’s drinking water system.
Pittsburgh, PA - Today, the Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority announced its participation in the 10th annual national advocacy and educational event, United for Infrastructure 2022, taking place from May 16-20, 2022. Across the country, businesses, labor organizations, and elected officials will come together once more to spread the message that the nation must #LeadWithInfrastructure.
PWSA is proud to participate in this national event and excited to share information about our infrastructure renewal projects and recent achievements with our ratepayers. We will share information about some of our most important infrastructure investments on social media throughout the week; use the hashtag #LeadWithInfrastructure to follow along with the ways in which we are advancing once-in-a-generation projects to modernize Pittsburgh’s water infrastructure.
United for Infrastructure provides an opportunity to highlight the historic investment we are making in the water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure thousands of customers and Pittsburgh residents rely on each day. From the comprehensive projects in the Water Reliability Plan to the water, sewer, and stormwater projects happening in our neighborhoods – our community is watching first-hand, the renewal of Pittsburgh’s complex water system.

"Providing our customers with safe, high-quality water services is our top priority,” said PWSA’s CEO Will Pickering. “As stewards of this vital public resource, every dollar we spend is reinvested into the systems our customers rely on. The improvements we are making today to rebuild our essential water infrastructure will protect Pittsburgh’s water future for years to come.”
About United for Infrastructure 2022
United for Infrastructure 2022 is a week-long event that advocates for better infrastructure policy and greater investment from all levels of government. Quality, affordable infrastructure – from clean water and broadband internet to safe transportation and strong supply chains – is a perennially important subject that maintains strong bipartisan support from voters, with more supporters wanting government action on infrastructure than almost any other issue.
Now in its tenth year, United for Infrastructure brings together diverse voices advocating for infrastructure. The theme, Lead with Infrastructure, emphasizes the concept of not just an infrastructure week or even year, but an infrastructure decade. We are thrilled with the renewed attention the current Congress and administration are bringing to this issue, culminating with the successful passing of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act) in November of 2021. Now it is time to look ahead to an Infrastructure Decade, time to lead with infrastructure and get to work!
Our comprehensive participation and highlighted projects will be housed on our National Water Sector Events page at Pgh2o.com/united-infrastructure.
The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) is the largest combined water, sewer and stormwater authority in Pennsylvania, serving 300,000 consumers throughout the City of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas.
