Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority is distributing water and testing water Feb. 1, after the agency issued a boil water advisory, closing 24 schools and impacting roughly 100,000 customers. The advisory was due to “recent disinfection and chlorine testing taken at a single location near the Highland Park drinking water filtration plant. A few tests showed low levels of free chlorine in the treated drinking water,” according to a PWSA news release. The microscopic parasite giardia can live in low-chlorine environments.
