(September 20, 2019) – Pennsylvania American Water today issued a precautionary boil water advisory for customers in portions of the company’s Allegheny County service area.
Pennsylvania American Water experienced a loss in positive water pressure on September 20, 2019, at water storage tanks in Castle Shannon and Green Tree Borough following a 24-inch water main break this morning in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Carrick. The broken main limited the company’s ability to replenish the water storage tank and local system.
A loss of positive water pressure is a signal of the existence of conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through backflow by back‑pressure or back-siphonage. As a result, there is an increased chance that the water might contain disease-causing organisms.
