This project will build a new transmission water line, connecting the Water Treatment Plant and the Lanpher Reservoir, located in Shaler Township. The new line will create a backup water feed for the existing Lanpher Rising Main, which is nearly 100 years old. This multi-million dollar, two-year project will ensure reliable water service for one-third of Pittsburgh’s population who live and work in the Northside.
Progress & Status
- Project team has continuously met with government officials and other major stakeholders in each impacted community.
- Soil samples and other geological surveys are being completed along the path of the new pipe.
- When an official route has been determined for the new pipe, we will begin to engage residents and businesses that will be impacted by the work to provide information and receive feedback.
