Highland I Reservoir Security Improvements
To maintain the open Highland I Reservoir as a public amenity, we are constructing several projects to meet stricter state water quality regulations and security improvements. These projects will improve the security of our drinking water.
Curb Box Inspections
Curb box inspections are a low-impact way to determine the material of residential service lines throughout our water system. This data informs our Lead Service Line Replacement Program and the overall inventory of lead service lines in PWSA's water service area.
Curb boxes are a pipe that leads to the shut-off valve on a water service line. They are normally located in the sidewalk or in front of the home. Crews will inspect hundreds of curb boxes throughout the distribution system by cleaning out the curb box and televising the pipe below.
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.
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.
