Highland I Reservoir Security Improvements
To maintain the open Highland I Reservoir as a public amenity, we are constructing several projects to meet stricter state water quality regulations and security improvements. These projects will improve the security of our drinking water.
Curb Box Inspections
Curb box inspections are a low-impact way to determine the material of residential service lines throughout our water system. This data informs our Lead Service Line Replacement Program and the overall inventory of lead service lines in PWSA's water service area.
Curb boxes are a pipe that leads to the shut-off valve on a water service line. They are normally located in the sidewalk or in front of the home. Crews will inspect hundreds of curb boxes throughout the distribution system by cleaning out the curb box and televising the pipe below.
Hamilton Avenue Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Homewood neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace over 2,000 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. As part of the water main replacement, we will replace all public water service lines, including lead water service lines, with a non-lead material. If a public lead service line is connected to a private lead line, we will replace it at the same time at no cost to the customer.
Lead Service Line Replacement
We are replacing lead water service lines throughout our service area to reduce exposure to lead in drinking water. To avoid partial lead line replacements, we coordinate with customers to replace private lead service lines at no cost when replacing public lead lines.
