Customers should not drink water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and cool before using. You may also use bottled water. Until further notice from Pennsylvania American Water, residents should use cooled boiled water or bottled water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation.

Ingram Municipal Building: 40 W Prospect Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15205. Customers should bring their own containers when visiting the tanker for drinking water.

Deasy: $175,000 in state funding awarded to Crafton Borough for park improvement project

(Sep 17, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Sept. 17 – A $175,000 state grant earmarked for a park rehabilitation project was awarded Tuesday to Crafton Borough, announced state Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny. Deasy said the funding was awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority and funded through the state’s Greenways, Trail and Recreation Program. “The funding awarded today falls in unison with the commitment by Crafton Borough to follow a comprehensive plan to improve their community parks to ensure the safety of children,” Deasy said. “This grant money will help the borough accomplish this initiative, and I look forward to seeing the benefits of this funding in the near future.” Deasy said the funding will go toward playground improvements at Crafton Park, which includes the installation of a modern safety surface for the playground area, consisting of interlocking rubberized tiles that reduce the risk of injury from falls around playground equipment. The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. Read more

(Aug 02, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Aug. 1 – The city of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Musical Theater on Thursday received a combined total of $1.5 million in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program funding, announced state Rep. Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny. “This is significant funding for two significant projects in the 27 th Legislative District,” Deasy said. “RACP funding allows for the construction and improvement of new and existing facilities, so I’m excited to see the benefits of this funding in the near future.” The city of Pittsburgh was awarded $500,000 to be used for the ongoing redevelopment of the former Stevens Elementary School. The facility will now be the Special Deployment Headquarters, Deasy said, which will establish valuable community policing elements in Pittsburgh’s West End. Most of the RACP funding will be used for construction, elevator installation, lighting and technological infrastructure. The Pittsburgh Musical Theater will use its $1 million in funding to renovate the theater’s South Main Street property. Deasy said the project will have four phases, which include constructing a new entrance and theater lobby, a backstage area and shop space on the first floor, interior renovations to all 10 studios/classrooms, new landscaping and lighting, and more. The Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program is a grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, Read more
