Panel releases report on PWSA restructuring

 

January 9, 2018



The Blue Ribbon Panel named early this year by Mayor William Peduto to study the Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority has issued its final report on the possible restructuring of the agency. 

The report is available at: http://apps.pittsburghpa.gov/redtail/images/1279_PWSAfinal.pdf.

“I want to thank the members of the panel for their hard work over the past year and the public service they have delivered to the entire Pittsburgh community. Nothing is more important than protecting our water and ensuring that residents are provided this precious resource safely and efficiently,” Mayor Peduto said. 

Mayor Peduto assembled the panel in March to study the challenges facing the PWSA and to name an advisory firm to help guide their work. The City, with the concurrence of the Panel, chose Infrastructure Management Group as that firm in April. After a series of public meetings, studies of PWSA operations and studies of the agency IMG issued its findings in November. 

It is expected that the review of the Panel’s recommendations will be publicly discussed by the mayor, council and the PWSA Board in January.
