Highland Park Rising Main and Pump Station

In Planning Water

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.

Progress & Status

Complete
  • Redeveloping the pump station located in Highland Park near Mellon Terrace
  • Installing a 48-inch new rising main to connect the new pump station to the Highland I Reservoir System, which serves approximately 50% of our customers
  • Replacing the original supply main that carries water from the Highland II Reservoir to the pump station

These projects are currently in their design phase and construction is anticipated to begin in the first half of 2020. We are coordinating with the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, the Port Authority of Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Zoo, the Highland Park Community Council, and the Highland Park Community Development Corporation. 

In November 2019, we received final approval for the design of the new Pump Station near Mellon Terrace. In March of 2020, we will hold additional community meetings about the project with the Highland Park Community Council and will begin outreach to residents to share greater detail about the project and construction.
