The Four Mile Run Watershed encompasses Schenley Park and several Pittsburgh neighborhoods including Greefield, Hazelwood, Oakland, and Squirrel Hill. After a lengthy review process with State regulators, PWSA will pursue the design of a stormwater only pipeline in The Run neighborhood, located in the basin of the watershed. This project will help to reduce basement backups and neighborhood flooding that many residents in The Run have experienced.
Progress & Status
The construction of a stormwater only pipeline will help to alleviate flooding and basement backups and will convey stormwater from The Run neighborhood to the Monongahela River. PWSA plans to initiate the design of this project in 2023.
PWSA remains committed to the construction and installation of green infrastructure projects within the Four Mile Run Watershed and throughout Pittsburgh. These project components for Four Mile Run will be phased in at a later time.
