This message is for the following Altoona Water Authority customers:

  • On the 2900 block of Walnut Ave
  • 939 29th St

As a customer of the Altoona Water Authority, you were notified on September 22nd 2022 of a water main repair at 2929 Walnut Ave.

Events such as these may cause a temporary loss of positive water pressure.  Any loss of positive water pressure could allow contamination to enter the distribution system through back-flow by back-pressure or back-siphonage.  You were therefore advised to use boiled or bottled water (for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food preparation) until further notice.

We are now pleased to report that all follow-up water samples have been tested, and the system has remained free of contamination.  You are no longer required to boil your water; the water is safe to drink.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

As always, you may contact:

The Altoona Water Authority
Water Maintenance Division
832 20th St
Altoona, PA 16601
at (814) 949-2214
