Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Issued For Stanton Heights & Garfield

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A precautionary flush and boil advisory has been issued for parts of Stanton Heights and Garfield due to a temporary pumping failure, the Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority has announced.

On Saturday morning, a loss of water pressure was detected due to damage caused during the T-Mobile construction near the Garfield Tank around 11:00 a.m.

Pump sensors were restored around 1:30 p.m. and this caused low and no water pressure in part of high elevation in Garfield and Stanton Heights.

A loss of pressure can cause contaminants to enter drinking water.

Water buffaloes can be found at Engine 7 at the intersection of Stanton Avenue and Hawthorne Street; and near the intersection of North Aiken Avenue and Mossfield Street.

Approximately 300 households are impacted by this notice.
