The MTMA works diligently to provide excellent water service to our customers at the lowest long-term cost. MTMA supplies water to nearly all the 27,000 residents and business of Moon Township. This includes water supply to the Pittsburgh International Airport, Robert Morris University and the three military bases located in our area.
The MTMA water treatment plant received significant renovation from 2017 through 2019. This state-of-the-art facility consistently meets all requirements and provides a reliable source of safe, good tasting water. The treatment facility receives raw water from wells and from the Ohio River. We have emergency water supply interconnects with four neighboring water systems to enhance the reliability of both the MTMA and the neighboring systems. MTMA has five finished water storage tanks and over 145 miles of waterlines. MTMA has a well-maintained water supply and the lowest water rate in the area. This has been achieved by charging adequate water service rates to maintain the water supply system and then making strategic, cost-effective investments to renew aging system components.
Upcoming major projects include the construction of a new pipeline from the wells and river intake to the treatment plant, painting of water storage tanks, rebuilding of our largest water supply well, and replacement of older waterlines.
In recent years, all significant projects were managed by the MTMA and many were also constructed by MTMA staff to save money. MTMA strives to be a good steward of the funds our customers pay for water service. The MTMA water supply is a significant community asset.
