PWSA customers say bills are way too high
PWSA customers say bills are way too high.
He wants to know what’s going on with the water bills on his street, including his daughter’s, which went up $80 this month, his neighbor’s, which jumped more than $60 and the bill at the bar he used to own that nearly doubled.
Anesin told Channel 11 their usage hasn’t changed.
“July and August are the two slowest months of the year over there, and it just don’t seem right," Anesin said.
For more than a year now, 11 Investigates has been reporting on issues plaguing the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, including billing issues.
He and his other neighbors worry the sky-high bills stem from a nearby water leak that wasn’t fixed for several months and crews flushing hydrants on their street around the PWSA’s boil water advisory.
Even though neighbors think the hydrant flushing has something to do with their bill increases, when Channel 11 checked with the PWSA, they said that’s not the case."
11 Investigates later heard from the PWSA about the review of those bills.
Last week, just up Route 28 in Millvale, 11 Investigates dug into problems PWSA is having there.
Millvale residents had to boil their water an extra five days because of inconsistent chlorine tests after problems with a reservoir affected much of the North Side and Reserve Township.
