This project will complete the 18.5 mile connection of the two large water storage tanks in Ruffsdale and Adamsburg, and allow water from the Indian Creek Water Treatment Plant and the Sweeney WTP to interchangeably supply each others system.
Sweeney is located in Bell Township and supplies MAWC service addresses north of Route 30.
Indian Creek is located in South Connellsville and supplies MAWC service addresses south of Route 30, along with North Versailles and Forward in Allegheny County.
Together, these two plants serve approximately 107,000 of the MAWC's approximate 120,000 drinking water service addresses.
This 18.5 mile 48" project will allow the two systems' water supply to be used in place of the other in the event of an issue.
