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.

The PWSA project team hosted a meeting to discuss the project Tuesday, October 13th, at 5:30 p.m. The project information sheet from this meeting can be found here.
