COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Effective immediately, The South Fayette Municipal Authority, 900 Presto Sygan Road, is closed to the public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus. All employees will continue working with office staff providing services via phone, email, U.S. mail, fax and web.

The Authority restriction is based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Allegheny County Health Department that communities practice social distancing to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus.

Sewer Rate Modification Notice

For 2020, the basic monthly service charge will continue to be $12.00. The MATSF service charge is billed to all
customers regardless of water use and is primarily utilized for fixed costs such as debt service (repayment of
loans), insurance, billing and similar costs. Commencing with your next (February) bill, the consumption charge
will increase from $11.50/thousand gallons to $12.15/thousand gallons. This is directly a result of ALCOSAN’s
2020 rate increase as discussed in detail in the MATSF 2020 budget.

MATSF receives “GROW” grant offer from ALCOSAN

In 2017, MATSF expended $147,262 for rehabilitation work on various sewers segments of the Millers Run Trunk Sewer between the Allegheny/Washington County line and the South Fayette Volunteer Fire Department.    The key aspects of the work included pipe lining and joint grouting to reduce groundwater leaking into the sanitary sewer and to address locations where roots had intruded into various pipe joints.   A grant application was filed with ALCOSAN as part of the first round of their “GROW” grant program (Green Revitalization of Our Waterways Program).  While ALCOSAN rejected the grant request during that round, they invited MATSF to re-apply in 2019.  Subsequently, ALCOSAN announced a grant offer in the amount of $35,800, or 24% of the project costs.  The GROW grant agreement was recently executed by both MATSF and ALCOSAN, and upon completion of a final report, the funds are anticipated to be received during the first quarter of 2020.

MATSF Feasibility Study

The ACO (Administrative Consent Order) process culminated in the preparation of a feasibility study by each community tributary to ALCOSAN. The feasibility studies are intended to provide specific actions that each tributary municipality or Authority envisions implementing between now and 2026 to curtail sewer system overflows.
