On March 23, courtesy of Baptist Temple Church, PWSA hosted members of the community for an informative overview of our Fuchsia Way Sewer Reconstruction Project, which kicked off this month.
At the meeting, residents had the opportunity to learn more about the project and ask questions of officials from our Executive, Engineering, Lead Help, and Public Affairs departments.
As part of this project, PWSA will replace the sewer and water mains located within Fuchsia Way. The Wilkinsburg-Penn Joint Water Authority (WPJWA) will also replace the water main located within their service area.
The full scope of work includes:
- Full reconstruction of sewer main, manholes, and storm drains
- Partial replacement of private sewer laterals per property owner approval
- Full replacement of PWSA and WPJWA water mains
- Replacement of identified lead service lines
- Restoration of street and impacted sidewalks
This project is the culmination of a productive community conversation that began at a community meeting last summer. Residents from parts of Race and Monticello Streets described sewer-related issues they were experiencing. Since then, with the help of data gathered from residents through a community survey and information provided during one-on-one conversations, we’ve come up with a solution that will improve the reliability of water and wastewater services in this neighborhood.
