The demolition of the Becks Run Pump Station in Baldwin Borough was completed more quickly than planned, allowing East Carson Street to be reopened this morning.

The demolition originally was planned to keep the street shut down until Monday morning for safety purposes.

Built in 1894, the Becks Run Pump Station came to supply a large portion of the area's drinking water, pulling up to 60 million gallons a day from the Monongahela River and sending it on its way to 291,000 customers in Allegheny and Washington counties. Its long useful life ended last year, when Pennsylvania American Water completed a new facility next door.
