Westmoreland water authority workers may provide assistance

The Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County wants to send some of its workers to Haiti to help provide drinking water to the earthquake-ravaged nation.

Authority members on Thursday informally gave permission for the agency's management to contact relief agencies that specialize in water repair projects and offer assistance.

"We have highly trained experts in the field of water quality and purification," said authority manager Chris Kerr. "We will tell (relief) organizations we're willing to pitch in."

The International Red Cross has estimated that as many as 50,000 people died in the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti on Tuesday.

Kerr said the authority will seek volunteers to travel to Haiti for about two weeks with pay and help with efforts to provide drinking water. Those volunteers would work with relief organizations. The authority would not coordinate any efforts on its own.

The authority, which provides water to more than 120,000 residential and commercial customers in five counties, has made preliminary inquiries about efforts to repair the country's water infrastructure.

Before any volunteers are sent to the island, liability issues must be resolved, authority officials said.

"I think it's a great idea. It's something we as an organization should take a look at," said authority member Keith Staso.
