DEP issues order against PWSA to ensure safe drinking water

The state Department of Environmental Protection has issued an Administrative Order on the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority requiring the Authority to make critical infrastructure upgrades and repairs to its public drinking water system to ensure adequate pressure and volume.

The Order requires PWSA to take specific corrective actions on three of its critical water system improvement projects on a schedule prescribed by the DEP. Those three projects include constructing a new liner at the 133 million gallon treated drinking water Lanpher reservoir; upgrading the microfiltration water treatment plant at Highland Reservoir #1 to include a UV disinfection system; and make improvements to the Brueken Pump Station by installing a backup pump and emergency backup power supply.

Procedural issue keeps Senate-crafted school voucher bill in committee

While the Senate Education Committee on Tuesday seemed to have advanced legislation to establish a school-voucher like program in Pennsylvania aimed at helping to give students in low-achieving schools more school choice options, a late-filed proxy that was not counted in the original vote tally has kept the legislation in committee to be considered at a later date.
