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. Orthophosphate is a food-grade additive that forms a protective barrier between lead pipes and the water flowing through them. Two of the four distribution points for orthophosphate are in Highland Park.
2019 Sewer Lining
This project, taking place throughout our service area, will rehabilitate 4.6 miles of sewers by installing an airtight, watertight lining inside of aging sewer pipes. This work has minimal impact to residents and is a cost-effective way to extend the life of our sewer system. Lining sewers will improve reliability and ensure better service to our customers.
