The installation of new water valves in Tarentum has been finished early.

The work, initially expected to take two weeks, was completed on Thursday, Borough Manager Michael Nestico said.

Residents were warned on Jan. 3 that the work could cause brief water outages.

Nine new valves were installed as part of the nearly $70,000 project, partially funded by a $32,000 grant.

They will enable a more reliable supply of water and help in reducing the duration of outages when a waterline breaks, according to the borough.

Valves were installed at First Avenue and Ross Street; First Avenue and Corbet Street; Fourth Avenue and Ross Street; East Seventh Avenue and Corbet Street; East Seventh and Lock Street; West Eighth Avenue and Grantham Street; West 10th Avenue and East Street; and West 11th Avenue and Center Street.

Nestico said two waterline breaks, both on Grantham Street, were fixed on Thursday.

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.
