Precautionary boil water advisory issued for 4 Pittsburgh neighborhoods

A precautionary boil water advisory was issued Wednesday for parts of four Pittsburgh neighborhoods.

Just before 7 a.m., the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority experienced a break on a section of an 8-inch water main on Lorenz Avenue which caused lower or no water pressure in several neighborhoods including Crafton Heights, Elliot, Ridgemont and Westwood.

When there is water pressure loss, contaminants can enter drinking water, leading to the precautionary advisory.

Water buffaloes were made available at these locations for people affected: Hasslet Street in the Herschel Playground, Hamburg Street at Springfield Street, Lorenz Avenue at Rue Grande Vue and 1717 Hethlon Street.
