'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.

The boil-water advisory has been lifted in all areas impacted by water restrictions in Kittanning and Applewold boroughs and areas of Manor and Rayburn townships.

Gary Lobaugh, spokesman for Pennsylvania American Water, said Sunday that customers no longer have to boil water and all water restrictions have been discontinued.

Samples collected Friday and Saturday showed acceptable bacteria levels, and the state Department of Environmental Protection authorized lifting the advisory.

A loss in water pressure prompted the advisory. Friday's water emergency forced cancellation of Light Up Night in downtown Kittanning.

Ray Voller, president of Downtown Kittanning Inc., said Light Up Night won't be rescheduled due to schedule conflicts.
