Woods Run Stormwater Project: Phase Two

In Planning Stormwater

Riverview Park is a city park located in the Perry North neighborhood. This project will use green stormwater infrastructure in the park to capture rainwater runoff, stabilize streams, and redirect and store stream water.

Progress & Status

90%
Design Complete

Phase One: Riverview Avenue

Phase Two: Mairdale Avenue

  • Stream restoration work and rain gardens in the lower portion of Riverview Park near the Mairdale Avenue entrance.
  • Tree plantings will also increase rainwater capture. 
  • These improvements will reduce park flooding, erosion, and combined sewer overflows to the Ohio River. 
  • This phase is undergoing a redesign to evaluate flood mitigation.
  • In December 2021, the Joint Permit Application to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was submitted for review.
