Procrastinated on making Labor Day plans? No problem — we've got a guide for that. Pittsburgh's Labor Day parade is one of the largest in the nation, with 200 groups expected to march, including at least 150 affiliates of the AFL-CIO. The day also features a picnic for academic workers in the afternoon and a movie screening in the evening.
After almost a week, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority on Sunday night lifted the boil water advisory in Millvale, KDKA reported. "The residents and officials in Millvale have been extremely patient and helpful as we worked through this boil water advisory, and we are grateful for their cooperation," the authority's interim executive director said in a news release. Earlier this weekend, WPXI chronicled the frustrations of Millvale residents dealing with the advisory.
