PWSA lifts flush and boil advisory for Millvale
The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority ended the boil water advisory Sunday for the residents of Millvale.
"The residents and officials in Millvale have been extremely patient and helpful as we worked through this boil water advisory, and we are grateful for their cooperation. Our main goal at PWSA is, and will always be, providing safe drinking water to our customers," PWSA Interim Executive Director Robert Weimar said in a statement.

The advisory was issued last Monday night when officials discovered a tear in the cover at the Lanpher Reservoir. Officials were worried about contamination from birds that sit on the cover.
"We would like to thank the Borough of Millvale and public safety officials for their coordination and assistance as we rectified this issue," Weimar said.
