In Planning Green Stormwater

The Maryland Avenue Stormwater Improvement Project will use cost-effective green stormwater solutions throughout Shadyside to reduce runoff from entering the combined sewer system.

Progress & Status

Design Complete

These stormwater solutions will be constructed within the public right of way (public streets and sidewalks). This project will help to reduce the ongoing issues of basement backups, neighborhood flooding, and combined sewer overflows that commonly occur during heavy rains

The project goals are to:

  • Capture and store stormwater runoff before it reaches our overwhelmed combined sewer system
  • Reduce combined sewer overflows in the A-22 sewershed
  • Reduce basement backups and neighborhood flooding
