Two years ago, local birds and animals got a little too comfortable atop the Lanpher Reservoir's torn covering, leading to flush and boil warnings in Millvale and Reserve Township. After an $8.7 million renovation, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority announced Wednesday that the reservoir is back to its full operating capacity.

An estimated 18,000 homes in Pittsburgh's northern neighborhoods, MillvaleĀ and Reserve Township will continue to be under a flush and boil water advisory until at least Thursday, Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority officials said Tuesday.
