PWSA board considers assistance program, moratorium on service shutoffs

The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority board is poised to begin a customer assistance program, along with a suggested moratorium on water service shutoffs for customers.

PWSA board Chairwoman Debbie Lestitian moved Thursday to create a subcommittee within the board to consider the approach, asking Councilwoman Deb Gross (District 7) and Vice Chairperson Margaret Lanier to take the lead.

“An important part of working on a public authority is listening to the public," said Lestitian. “I’ve had several meetings with a lot of the community groups, they’ve all expressed the same concerns. With three new board members now, it’s a responsible time to explore customer assistance programs and their requests for a potential shut off moratorium.”
