Municipal Authority Of Westmoreland County Issues Boil Water Alert

GREENSBURG (KDKA)— Officials with the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County have issued a precautionary boil water alert for many of the communities they service.

Those affected include around 50,000 people served by the authority who live north of Route 30. Two Allegheny County communities are also included in the precaution: White Oak and McKeesport.

Authorities say they’ve issued the advisory because a filter water sample collected on Wednesday at the George R. Sweeney Treatment Plant indicated a problem.

They call it a “potential deficiency of the filtration barrier.”
Probably caused by fracking. Could be anything, but I'm inclined to think fracking. Because if the money cities receive, it's likely to hear lies. Cover ups apply with large amounts of money. You get the warning, but not the true cause.

I was curious as to why the EPA made this discovery. Does the EPA typically monitor the water supply. I thought the water company would monitor the safety of the water supply.

Thank Marcellus for contributing to Corbett's campaign ,fracking will kill us all in due time,by that time all the water will have methane gas in it..... boil water on my gas stove will just add cost to my gas bill, who pays for that? And yes, the EPA does check on water at all municipalities on a routine basis, some are even paid off to fudge the numbers.

Safe to drink thw water Corbett says!!
