Aspinwall Pump Station to Lanpher Reservoir Rising Main Project

In Planning Water Reliability Plan

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.

Design Complete
  • Project team has continuously met with government officials and other major stakeholders in each impacted community.
