Pittsburgh City Council advanced a bill Wednesday that would allow the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority to replace private lead service lines, TribLive reported. The city is forbidden by a court ruling from doing that, but Kevin Acklin, the mayor's chief of staff, said Pittsburgh can get around the order by "declaring the situation a public safety hazard." PWSA estimates that a quarter of its service lines are made of lead, but the math behind that number is shaky, according to PublicSource.
