The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority is hosting an online meeting to review construction plans for Howe Street as part of the Maryland Avenue Stormwater Improvement Project. This meeting is an opportunity to learn more about the project and ask questions about its design, the construction schedule, and potential impacts.
The meeting recording will be posted online afterward.
About the Project
The Maryland Avenue Stormwater Improvement Project will use cost-effective green stormwater solutions throughout Shadyside to reduce runoff entering the combined sewer system. These stormwater solutions will be constructed within the public right of way (public streets and sidewalks). This project will help to reduce the ongoing issues of basement backups, neighborhood flooding, and combined sewer overflows that commonly occur during heavy rains. The first phase of the project includes Howe Street and Kentucky Avenue between South Negley Avenue and College Street. The Kentucky Avenue portion was constructed in 2021 and the Howe Street portion is expected to begin construction in early 2022.
This project is partially funded by ALCOSAN's GROW grant program. For more information about the project, please visit www.pgh2o.com/maryland-ave.
Please register for the meeting whether you plan to join online or by phone.
