For more than 75 years, WVWA has delivered clean, safe water to residents and businesses in what is now a 100-square mile service area, which includes a large portion of Allegheny County and smaller portions of Beaver and Butler Counties.
WVWA has two water treatment plants. The original plant is located on Neville Island with a capacity of 40 MGD. The new water treatment plant is located in Baden, PA, and beginning in fall 2019, this plant is expected to have a capacity of 15 MGD and the ability to expand to 30 MGD to support future growth. Both plants pull from the Ohio River as the main source of supply. Granular activated carbon is used in the treatment process at both plants and the water quality meets or exceeds all local, state and federal regulatory standards. The Authority owns and maintains 10 reservoirs throughout the service territory with a maximum water storage capacity of 39.85 MG.
As a municipal utility, WVWA is a publicly owned, nonprofit organization, proud to put its customers and community first.
