During March and April, members of our Public Affairs and Stormwater teams participated in five virtual Watershed Task Force meetings hosted by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy (PPC). These five task forces were created last year by the PPC based on the Negley Run Watershed Task Force. Each task force brings together community members and organizations to advance stormwater solutions for a watershed with high levels of combined sewer overflows: Heth’s Run, South 21st Street, Woods Run, the Hill District/Uptown, and Four Mile Run. During the meetings, we presented updates on our city-wide stormwater initiatives and stormwater projects within the relevant watershed, then engaged the community members in discussion about their priorities and ideas for the watershed.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our downtown office at 1200 Penn Avenue is closed until further notice.
