Pittsburgh Water and Sewer authority settles after charges filed
PITTSBURGH (AP) —
Pittsburgh's Water and Sewer authority has reached a settlement after charges were filed against it.
The water authority will complete at $48 million construction project to replace drinking water lead service lines in certain distribution systems.
This comes after it was charged with 161 counts of violating Pennsylvania's safe drinking water law by the attorney general's office.
PWSA’s director says they will use a combination of Pennvest grants and low-interest loans to reduce the burden placed on taxpayers to make these changes.
