Time running out for some So. Side property owners to get lead lines replaced by PWSA

 

October 23, 2018



Time is rapidly running out for some South Side properties to take advantage of Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority’s (PWSA) Lead Service Line Replacement (LSLR) program.

The LSLR program will replace the private part of a lead service line, the pipe from the curb box to the meter inside the house, while PWSA is replacing the lead service line from the main to the curb box. If done while PWSA is replacing the public service line during this project, expected to be completed within the next two weeks, there is no cost to the property owner.

However, if the property owner does not signed agreement with PWSA for the LSLR by Friday, Oct. 26, they will be responsible for paying the full cost to replace the private service line if they choose to, estimated to be as high as $10,000. If the property owner later chooses to replace the private side of the service line, PWSA will coordinate with them to replace the public side of the line, but will not pay for the private side work.

In this instance, after the current neighborhood project is finished, the property owner would need to call into lead help desk at PWSA to coordinate the public side at that time should they decide to do private side replacement on their own.

PWSA has attempted to contact all property owners in the South Side target area to complete the lead line replacement while they are in the neighborhood but haven’t received permission from some owners. Those owners are encouraged to contact the Lead Help Desk at 412-255-8987 immediately to make the deadline.
