ASPINWALL, Pa. - A boil water advisory issued Wednesday morning for Aspinwall Borough was lifted shortly before noon on Friday.
“I was drinking some water in a restaurant that seemed fine, until I heard that,” Karissa Berard, who shops in Aspinwall, said.
Residents who live in the area reported brown water and low pressure on Wednesday.

The issue started overnight Tuesday, when the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority conducted maintenance on a pump in its Aspinwall plant. It caused water pressure to drop, which a PWSA spokesman said is linked to a pipe replacement project in Etna.
Aspinwall’s borough manager put the boil water advisory in place after learning of the issues just after 4 a.m. Wednesday.
“I bought a case of water for coffee and food preparation. Other than that, we're just going about our normal business,” Mike Piccardo, an Aspinwall resident, said.
