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.
Highland Park Orthophosphate Project
In April 2019, the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority began adding orthophosphate to reduce lead levels in drinking water.
