PITTSBURGH, Pa. (April 16, 2021) – Pennsylvania American Water announced today the start of construction to replace approximately 1 mile of aging water main in West Mifflin, Allegheny County, to improve service reliability and fire protection for residents.

On Monday, April 19, Pennsylvania American Water contractors will start upgrading water mains along Lombardy and Romany Drives. The investment also includes water main replacement projects along Duquesne Avenue, Grant Street, Helena Street, Holiday Drive, Homestead Avenue, and Mary Street.

Crews will work weekdays between 7 a.m., and 5 p.m. Traffic restrictions will be in place during construction. Company employees and contractors will exercise caution and follow CDC guidance for social distancing and hygiene while performing this work.
