'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.

Conservation lifted

Pennsylvania American Water lifted a water conservation notice Monday night for customers of Allegheny and Washington counties who had been asked earlier in the day to reduce water consumption because of a power failure at its Becks Run pumping station, one of the utility's primary intakes on the Monongahela River.

Customers in higher elevations — including Green Tree, Mt. Lebanon, Baldwin Township, Baldwin Borough, Castle Shannon, Dormont and parts of Pittsburgh — may have experienced low pressure, no water or cloudy water while the repairs were being made.

Customers were encouraged to reduce nonessential water use both indoors and outside while the pump station was down, according to the company. The power loss occurred Monday morning.

Pennsylvania American lifted the conservation notice about 8 p.m.
