PWSA signs agreement with state DEP to restart lead line replacements

The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority reached an agreement with the Department of Environmental Protection to restart the replacement of lead pipes that bring water into people’s homes. 

PWSA halted its line replacement program in June because of the health risks associated with the partial line replacements. The authority also claimed it did not have the ability to replace lead pipes on private citizen’s property.

Treasurer's Task Force floats solutions for Pennsylvania retirement gap

As part of a task force to address the little under half of Pennsylvania's who cannot save for retirement through work, State Treasurer Joe Torsella held the second of three meetings on the gap in retirements savings in Pittsburgh Friday morning.

The meeting focused on hearing from state business leaders and retirement planners, who laid out the high cost for many small firms to set up retirement funding for their employees. While the panel was presented with a few solutions, none will be formally presented by the task force until a final meeting in January in Harrisburg.
