West View Water Authority is committed to providing residents with a safe and reliable supply of high-quality drinking water.  The water produced by the Authority continues to meet strict state and federal standards for both appearance and safety.  This annual "Consumer Confidence Report," required by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), informs you of where your water comes from, what our tests show about it, and other information you should know about your drinking water.

 

Public participation in decisions about our drinking water is encouraged at our Board Meetings held the third Wednesday of each month at 210 Perry Highway, West View.  Please contact our office at (412) 931-3292 for more information.  Water Quality Data for water systems in Allegheny County can be found on the Internet at http://www.drinkingwater.state.pa.us/.

Our Water Source

The West View water treatment plant is located on the tip of Neville Island along the shore of the Ohio River.  Our source water is surface water obtained from our intake structure in the Ohio River. A Source Water Assessment of our source was completed by the PA Department of Environmental Protection (Pa. DEP). The Assessment has found that our water source is potentially most susceptible to transportation corridors, bridges, boating, marinas, barge traffic, auto repair shops, truck terminals, utility substations, residential developments, combined sewer overflows, road deicing, and salt storage. 

 

Overall, our source has high risk of significant contamination. A summary report of the Assessment is available on the Source Water Assessment Summary Reports eLibrary web page at http://www.elibrary.dep.state.pa.us /dsweb/View/Collection-10045. Complete reports were distributed to municipalities, water suppliers, local planning agencies and PADEP offices. Copies of the complete report are available for review at the Pennsylvania DEP Southwest Regional Office, Records Management Unit at (412) 442-4000.
