Baum Boulevard Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Friendship/East Liberty neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace approximately 3,600 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This site was scheduled for replacement after several water main breaks occurred over the past year. As part of the main replacement, we will replace all residential public water service lines, including lead water service lines, with a non-lead material.
Highland Park Rising Main and Pump Station
To modernize our water infrastructure and add redundancy and resiliency throughout our drinking water system, we will construct a new pump station and rising main in Highland Park. These projects will serve the Highland Reservoir service area.
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
Wightman Park Stormwater Project: Phase Two
We are designing a network of stormwater "green streets" in Squirrel Hill to direct stormwater to recently improved infrastructure within Wightman Park.
Bates Street Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the South Oakland neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace approximately 1,500 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This site was scheduled for replacement after a history of water main breaks on the water main. This work will provide more reliable water service for customers in a critical junction of the distribution system.
Curb Box Inspections
Curb box inspections are a low-impact way to determine the material of residential service lines throughout our water system. This data informs our Lead Service Line Replacement Program and the overall inventory of lead service lines in PWSA's water service area.
Curb boxes are a pipe that leads to the shut-off valve on a water service line. They are normally located in the sidewalk or in front of the home. Crews will inspect hundreds of curb boxes throughout the distribution system by cleaning out the curb box and televising the pipe below.
