Edgerton Avenue Sewer Relocation Project
This sewer relocation project is in response to a 15-inch sewer collapse in the Point Breeze neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh. The work includes relocating the collapsed sewer into the edge of the Homewood Cemetery.
Ivyglen and Odette Street Sewer Project
In June of 2018, a landslide washed away an 8-inch sanitary sewer behind Odette Street in the Overbrook neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh. This project restored normal sanitary sewer service to some customers, installed a new storm sewer as well as new storm drains in the area.
Herron Avenue Water Main Replacement Project
This project, in the Polish Hill neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh, will replace approximately 1,000 feet of aging water main, providing more reliable water service to our customers. This site was scheduled for replacement after several water main breaks occurred on this portion on Herron Avenue in winter of 2017 and 2018. As part of the main replacement, we will replace all public water service lines, including lead water service lines, with a non-lead material. If a public lead service line is connected to a private lead line, we will replace it at the same time at no cost to the customer.
Centre & Herron Stormwater Project
This project at the intersection of Centre and Herron avenues directs runoff from surrounding streets into a cascading 585 foot-long bioswale, where it is absorbed by plants or soaks into the ground. Additional stormwater flows into underground storage tanks and is slowly released into the sewer system.
