Pittsburgh water utilities increase aid to low-income customers — but not equally

Posted on

“This pilot program at PWSA is one of the latest local efforts to support low-income water and sewage customers in the Pittsburgh area. The cost of providing water and sewage across the country has been increasing by more than triple the rate of inflation — and that cost is increasing even faster in the Pittsburgh area, as the region undertakes generational infrastructure improvements. In the city itself, these improvements include replacing lead drinking water pipes, doubling the capacity of its main sewage-treatment plant and building a backup drinking water system to prevent large-scale disruptions.”
