Mt. Lebanon High School reopens after water main break

Crews work to fix two water main breaks on Cochran Road in front of Mt. Lebanon High School early on Thursday, March 28, 2019. The high school, which was closed Wednesday, will be open Thursday.

Mt. Lebanon High School will be open for students and staff Thursday while crews continue work to fix water main breaks near the school.

The school was closed Wednesday because of the two water main breaks on Cochran Road. Water service has been restored to the school, according to the district.

One of the breaks occurred in a 16-inch line at Cochran Road and Lebanon Avenue, a spokesperson for Pennsylvania American Water told the Trib’s news partner, WPXI. The second break was in a 6-inch line at Cochran Road and Royce Avenue.

Pennsylvania American Water announced Thursday morning on its Facebook page that repairs are complete and service is returning to customers.

The company said its crews “experienced complications” while making repairs on Wednesday. A water tanker was made available at the CVS parking lot on Cochran Road.

The company advised customers to let their water run for a few minutes before using if it’s cloudy or discolored.

“We thank our customers for their patience throughout this repair and apologize for any inconveniences,” the company said.

Because the school was closed Wednesday, the district said that the district tiered band concert and rehearsal will take palce on Thursday. The concert will be held as scheduled at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
