Pennsylvania American Water Announces $1.6 million Washington County System Upgrade

Scheduled service disruption to take place Thursday evening for customers in portions of New Eagle, Carroll Township, and the City of Monongahela

McMurray, Pa. (Oct. 25, 2023) – Pennsylvania American Water announced today the start of construction on two new pressure-reducing valves (PRV) stations along Dry Run Road in Carroll Township, which will result in a temporary water service disruption Thursday evening.

The $1.6 million investment will replace an existing PRV station that has reached the end of its useful lifespan. The new PRV stations will increase reliability, better manage system water pressures, and enhance fire safety for residents.

Beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 26, contractors will begin installing one of the PRV stations, which will require a temporary service outage for customers in portions of New Eagle, Carroll Township, and the City of Monongahela.

The company anticipates resuming regular service at approximately 6 a.m. on Friday, October 27. Pennsylvania American Water is notifying affected customers through its automated emergency notification system. For more information and a map of the affected communities, click here.

The company anticipates completing this project in 2024.
