Legislation allowing PWSA to replace private lead water lines moves forward without defined funding

Pittsburgh City Council voted Wednesday to move ahead with a plan to replace the city’s privately owned lead water service lines without support from the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

Council voted 6 to 1 to move two bills along to a full vote on Tuesday to approve the bills’ final amendments. Councilwoman Darlene Harris (District 1) was the lone abstention, though Councilman Corey O’Connor stated he intended to abstain on the vote before leaving the council chamber prior to the vote.
