Wightman Park Stormwater Improvement Project
We are partnering with the City of Pittsburgh on ongoing improvements in Wightman Park within Squirrel Hill to create a safer, cleaner, greener, and more accessible park with better stormwater management.
31st Ward Sewer Reconstruction Project
This project, taking place in the Lincoln Place neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will line approximately 5 miles of aging sewers, repair broken sewers, relocate storm drains, and separate combined storm and sanitary sewers where needed. Work will be completed at numerous locations throughout the neighborhood and residents will be notified via letter, robocall, door hanger, or a combination of the three, when work may impact them. Lining and repairing these sewers will extend the life of the sewer system and ensure better service to our customers.
2019-2020 Street and Sidewalk Restoration Schedule
After we complete a water or sewer repair, we must then come back and repave or re-concrete the area we impacted as part of our work. This multi-million dollar effort improves streets and sidewalks throughout our service area as a result of our work underground.
We are responsible for asphalt and concrete replacement after emergency water and sewer repairs or infrastructure upgrade projects. When a job is complete, the location is given to the restoration contract, which sends asphalt, concrete, and line painting crews out to restore the area to its former condition. When work happens on your street, it may be a few weeks until paving and concrete crews return. Crews move in an orderly fashion around our service area completing work, focusing on all the locations in one area before moving onto the next.
