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.
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.
