As part of its 2020 Small Diameter Water Main Replacement Project, PWSA is replacing water mains
in the Greenfield/Squirrel Hill neighborhoods as well as Hazelwood. With over three miles of water mains in Greenfield/Squirrel Hill and just over a mile of mains in Hazelwood, this project will bring improved water quality and reliability to homes and businesses on these streets. (See article on page 4)
This work will also involve the replacement of all lead service lines found attached to the old water mains. To determine the optimal locations to find and replace lead service lines, PWSA has been assessing historical construction records, Census data, and blood lead records from the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD). These data points are overlaid and weighted to ultimately determine which areas of the city contractors should inspect and replace lead lines where found.
Work in Squirrel Hill began in the fall and is approximately 33% complete. Crews anticipate to be complete in the area in Spring of 2020. Work in Hazelwood is beginning this month and will also be completed in Spring 2021.

Sewer Rehab in Lincoln Place
Since early Summer 2020, PWSA has been hard at work in the Lincoln Place neighborhood completing a series of sewer upgrades. This $2.9 million project, taking place in the Lincoln Place neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will line approximately five miles of aging sewers, repair broken sewers, relocate storm drains, and separate combined storm and sanitary sewers where needed. Work will be completed at numerous locations throughout the neighborhood and residents will be notified via letter, robocall, door hanger, or a combination of the three, when work may impact them. Lining and repairing these sewers will extend the life of the sewer system and ensure better service to our customers.
This project, formally named the “31st Ward Sewer Project” will be a multi-year effort to upgrade this portion of our sewer system, including two pump stations in the area. This will amount to an over $13 million dollar investment in the neighborhood.
