Our Water Source

The West View Water Authority 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 a susceptibility rating of “A,” or high risk of significant contamination. A summary report of the Assessment is available on the Source Water Assessment & Protection web page at http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/deputate/watermgt/wc/Subjects/SrceProt/SourceAssessment/default.htm. Complete reports were distributed to municipalities, water suppliers, local planning agencies, and are available for review at the Pa. DEP Southwest Regional Office, Records Management Unit at (412) 442-4000.
