The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) has invested over $38 million in our Capital Improvement Plan through June. The five-year plan provides a detailed overview of our infrastructure that will be improved and rehabilitated in the near future. Ongoing projects include removing lead lines, replacing water mains, rehabilitating sewer pipes, and renovating our water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure. These investments will construct safe, modern infrastructure to povide our customers with high quality water services for years to come.
PWSA is committed to funding our water infrastructure projects and has invested nearly $24 million to improve our distribution system so far this year. Some of this work relates to projects identified in the Water Reliability Plan, which includes Rising Mains 3 and 4 upgrades, Highland II Reservoir improvements, Water Treatment Plant Pump Station upgrades, Water Treatment Plant Electrical Power and Backup projects, and the Lanpher Rising Main Project. These improvement projects are a series of once-in-a-generation projects leading to the complete restoration of the Clearwell storage facility. The Clearwell is a large storage facility that uses chlorine to kill harmful bacteria in our water. This critical component of our water system will need to be rehabilitated in the near future. The identified Water Reliability Plan projects must be completed before the Clearwell construction.
In addition to the identified projects, our water team is continually repairing lead lines and replacing aging water infrastructure. In the coming months, we will replace water mains in the.in the Hazelwood, Highland Park, Oakland, and Central Lawrenceville neighborhoods. By prioritizing the rehabilitation of aging infrastructure, PWSA can improve the reliability of our water distribution system. As illustrated by the graphic below, we contribute funds to improve our stormwater facilities, sewer infrastructure, and other water treatment and pumping stations.
