PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A rinse and boil precautionary advisory has been issued for parts of Stanton Heights and Garfield due to a temporary pumping outage, the Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority has announced.
On Saturday morning, a loss of water pressure was detected due to damage caused during the construction of the T-Mobile near the Garfield Reservoir at around 11:00 a.m.
The pump sensors were restored at around 1:30 p.m. resulting in low, zero water pressure in some of the high elevations at Garfield and Stanton Heights.
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.
About 300 households are affected by this notice.
