Upon completion, this project - being undertaken in partnership with the City of Pittsburgh - will address stormwater flooding issues in the area.
PWSA recently visited the Carrick neighborhood to share project updates on the Stewart Avenue Stormwater Improvements Project. The primary goals of this project are to:
- Reduce overland flooding within the project area, including the roadway, properties along Stewart Avenue, and backyard flooding.
- Implement stormwater best management practices to reduce peak sewer flows and achieve downstream flood reduction benefits.
- Design the proposed infrastructure with long-term maintenance considerations as a priority.
We will build approximately 3,000 feet of new storm sewers, improve roadway drainage into storm drains, and build a green infrastructure system, thanks to critical collaboration with the Shaare Torah Cemetery.
Final designs are wrapping up this summer and the project will go through the public bidding process. Construction is anticipated to begin in spring of 2024.
