The Munhall Sanitary Sewer Municipal Authority was formed in 2008, after the Borough along with many many other communities were given their 1st Consent Order by the EPA/DEP/ACHD.
Borough Council decided to branch off the Authority to manage and maintain the Sanitary Sewer System throughout the Borough of Munhall. This included dye tests, nearly $12,000,000 in sewer system repairs, updates and mapping. Just to name a few, and we are still improving! The majority of the sewer system within the Borough is to be on on average of 100 years old.
The Authority consists of a 100% volunteer 5 Member Board, an Authority Manager, and an Office Assistant. We subcontract out all of our sewer system work, since it is a specialized type of work.
The sewer system in Munhall system is considered a hybrid system which means that we are 1/4 Combined Sewer System, and 3/4 Closed Sanitary System.
MSSMA is ONE of the 83 Municipalities that contribute to the ALCOSAN Sewage Treatment Plant. http://www.3riversproud.com
