Walnut Street Water Main Replacement Project

In Construction Water

This project, in the Shadyside neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace the water main on Walnut Street, between Bellefonte Street and South Aiken Avenue, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This work was planned for the 2021 construction season and has been prioritized due to upcoming street lighting work planned by the City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI).
