Greystone Drive Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Highland Park neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace approximately 550 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This site was scheduled for replacement after several water main breaks occurred over the past year. As part of the main replacement, we will replace all public water service lines, including lead water service lines, with a non-lead material.
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.
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.
