Our Water Source

West View Water Authority has two water treatment plants. The original plant is located on the tip of Neville Island along the shore of the Ohio River and has a capacity of 40 million gallons per day.  The new water treatment plant is located in Baden, PA and has a capacity of 15 million gallons per day. The Baden WTP serves sections of Pine, Wexford, and Baden areas.  The Neville Island WTP serves Kennedy, McKees Rock, Stowe, Bellevue, Avalon, Ben Avon, Ben Avon Heights, Emsworth, Kilbuck, Ohio, Sewickley Hills, Ross, West View, McCandless, Franklin Park, Marshall, Richland, Bradford Woods the 28th Ward of the City of Pittsburgh and sections of Pine, Wexford, Adams, Cranberry, Economy, Reserve, Robinson, Sewickley Heights, and Shaler.

 

Both plants’ source water is surface water obtained from intake structures 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 Pa. DEP Southwest Regional Office, Records Management Unit at (412) 442-4000.
