• Esplen neighbors say they don't have enough water to take showers, clean dishes

    PITTSBURGH - Esplen neighbors told Channel 11 Monday they don’t have enough water to take showers or clean their dishes.

    “Two Thursdays ago, the pressure just cut back,” said Willie Tresky.  “It takes a long time to fill up the washing machine.  You have to put it on cold.  The toilet takes a long time to fill up, too.”

    Homeowners wonder if PennDOT’s $40 million project along West Carson Street is having a ripple effect on their water pressure.  Officials have not pinpointed a cause.

    “You’ve got old houses in the old neighborhoods.  Some of the pressure is really not that great anyway, and to take it down to half?” said Tresky.
