Fifth and Forbes Water Main Replacement Project
This project - spanning across the Central Business District, Uptown, and Oakland - will replace over two miles of water mains on Forbes Avenue and Fifth Avenue. As part of this work, we will replace any lead service lines found while replacing the water mains.
Planning & Future Projects
When PWSA's water mains, sewer pipes, and treatment facilities reach the end of their life, our team of engineers and project managers get to work designing and building new infrastructure. These projects are called "capital investments," and improve our water and sewer system for the long haul.Planning & Future Projects Overview
Highland II Reservoir: Liner and Cover Replacement
The Highland II Reservoir Liner and Cover Replacement includes the demolition and removal of the existing liner and cover and installation of a new reservoir liner, floating cover, and supplemental equipment such as the rainwater removal pumps and associated piping on the floating cover.
Walnut Street Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Shadyside neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace the water main on Walnut Street, between Bellefonte Street and South Aiken Avenue, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This work was planned for the 2021 construction season and has been prioritized due to upcoming street lighting work planned by the City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI).
Bunkerhill Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Highland Park neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace approximately 500 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This site was scheduled for replacement due to a history of water main breaks. As part of the main replacement, we will replace all public water service lines, including lead water service lines, with a non-lead material.
