PWSA provides quality water and quality services to approximately 83,000 customers throughout the City of Pittsburgh daily. The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority was created in 1984. At the time, the primary function of PWSA was to oversee a $200,000,000 capital improvement program designed to refurbish the infrastructure of the entire water system, including the water treatment plant and distribution system. In 1995, the City of Pittsburgh's Water Department became a part of The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority. At that time, the Authority became responsible for producing and supplying the water for City of Pittsburgh residents and to maintain and operate the water infrastructure. In 1999, PWSA became responsible for operating and maintaining the entire City sewer system.
