'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A number of Allegheny Township households should have municipal water soon.

Work started on June 26 to hook up 47 homes on Melwood, Markle and White Cloud roads to Municipal Authority of New Kensington water lines. Although a definite completion date was not available, municipal authority officials said the work is expected to be completed in a few weeks.

A majority of residents in that area twice responded positively to surveys by Allegheny Township officials asking if they were interested in acquiring municipal water service. A second survey was needed because costs for the project increased considerably. Still, most residents there indicated they wanted municipal water service despite the increased costs.

In other business

• A waterline replacement project along Kenmont Drive in Lower Burrell should be done next week, officials said.

Lower Burrell officials plan to repave Kenmont once the waterline project is completed.

The Kenmont project is being done with water authority workers. Other line replacement projects in the service area have been contracted out.

• The municipal authority board accepted the resignation of David Regoli, effective July 16.

On July 21, Regoli will take the oath of office as a Westmoreland County judge. The Lower Burrell resident's appointment was confirmed by the state senate earlier this week.

“This has been an incredible experience working with this board,” Regoli said. “It's been very easy to work here.”

The board on Thursday night hired Paul Zavarella of Plum as its new solicitor at a rate of $125 per hour.
