How to deal with the deadly Pittsburgh water supply
It’s hard to imagine a water crisis more terrifying than the one we face now, but that’s what we’ve got.
“It’s a really tough situation for people who have no way to get safe drinking water,” said Ben Pritchard, who runs the nonprofit Pittsburgh Water Works, which supplies most of the city’s population.
Pritchard has been working with the Pittsburgh Water Authority, the city water system, and the Allegheny County Public Health Department to ensure that the Pittsburgh River is safe for drinking.
The city also has to work with local authorities to ensure proper safety measures are in place.
The water supply is a major draw for the city, and as of Monday, the water was flowing at more than 3,000 gallons per minute.
But that’s not enough to meet demand for drinking water.
For example, on Monday, Pittsburgh Public Works reported that some residents who have water from the Pittsburgh Public Utility Authority are getting their water from private companies, and some residents are using bottled water from non-purchased suppliers.
Pritcher said he doesn’t expect to have a problem, and he said he’s already had conversations with the public about how they can get bottled water.
The water system was supposed to be able to keep up with demand through the summer, but the water has slowed to a trickle since last week.
People have been asked to conserve water by limiting their water use, using filters, and limiting other sources of water.
Pavlov said he hasn’t seen anything like this in years, and that he believes people need to be aware of how they’re using the water.
Pritcher told NBC News that he knows of several residents who are using a filter or other water management device that does not contain chemicals.
Pave, who lives in a residential area, has been using the filter to reduce her water consumption.
She said she thinks there are other solutions people can use to save water, like using more water filters or adding to their water supply, which would help them save more.
Pivnick said she and her husband have been using a water bottle to add to their regular water supply.
Pivnick’s husband has also been using bottled tap water.
“We have a really tight schedule, so we just can’t be taking it for granted, but we just keep trying,” Pivick said.
Povick said she wants to continue to help people avoid the dangers of using tap water, and she’s planning on attending a water education event on Monday at the University of Pittsburgh.
