West View Water getting $3.8 million federal grant

Tony LaRussa

The West Water Authority is receiving a $3.8 million grant through a partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for water system upgrades in Marshall Township, the Corps announced.

The money is to be used to upgrade water main extensions along Warrendale-Bayne Creek and Mingo roads.

The grant is available through the Water Resource Development Act, which authorizes the Secretary of the Army to assist communities in Allegheny County with “water-related environmental infrastructure and resource protection projects,” according to a news release from the Corps.

Col. Andrew Short, commander of the Army Corps’ Pittsburgh District office, is scheduled to formally announce receipt of the grant during the water authority’s board meeting on Aug. 21.

West View Water Authority supplies service to more than 200,000 customers in northern Allegheny County, southern Butler County and eastern Beaver County.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
