Alcosan’s Water Advisory System

The Alleghany County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN) was created in 1946 under the Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Act and began treating wastewater in 1959. Secondary (biological) treatment processes were added in 1972. The Authority is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors – three appointed by the Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, three appointed by the Allegheny County Chief Executive and one joint appointment.  ALCOSAN’s 59-acre treatment plant is one of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in the Ohio River Valley, processing up to 250 million gallons of wastewater daily.  As an environmentally and technologically focused organization, it has commenced the largest public works project in the region’s history through $1 billion in engineering and construction projects to address combined sewer overflows.  The facility has implemented a program called SOAK which is a complimentary water advisory to inform the local community of possible river contamination.  While these programs do not prohibit or discourage river recreational activities, they do caution recreational users to limit contact with river water when boating, fishing, water skiing or engaging in other river recreational activities. This program operates 7 days a week and is seasonal only ending on October 31st for this year.  As of today’s date, the system is in a dry weather operation with normal river quality and no advisories in effect.
