Rising Mains 3 & 4 Upgrades
This project is located in the Highland Park neighborhood within the City of Pittsburgh, in the vicinity of the Washington Boulevard, Allegheny River Boulevard, One Wild Place and surrounding areas including the Pittsburgh Zoo. Crews will rehabilitate and replace transmission water mains connecting the Bruecken Pump Station and covered Highland Reservoir No. 2. Making any repairs to these pipes will ensure there is reliable water service to many of our customers.
Lawn & Ophelia Stormwater Project
The Lawn and Ophelia Parklet is a city-owned park located in the South Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. This stormwater project will help to manage 1.5 inches of rain from 1.86 acres of impervious surfaces like roofs and pavement using green infrastructure.
Planning & Future Projects
When PWSA's water mains, sewer pipes, and treatment facilities reach the end of their life, our team of engineers and project managers get to work designing and building new infrastructure. These projects are called "capital investments," and improve our water and sewer system for the long haul.Planning & Future Projects Overview
Archive: Four Mile Run Stormwater Project
The initial design of the Four Mile Run Stormwater Project encompassed Schenley Park and several Pittsburgh neighborhoods including Greefield, Hazelwood, Oakland, and Squirrel Hill. The project was planned to capture and route stormwater through a natural channel that will follow the path of the historic streams that formed Four Mile Run from Panther Hollow Lake to the Monongahela River. It will help to reduce combined sewer overflows, basement backups, and neighborhood flooding.
Fleury Way Sewer Replacement Project
This project replaced approximately 750-feet of sewer on Fleury Way, between N. Murtland Street and N. Dallas Avenue. This project will improve stormwater drainage within the alleyway. As part of this work, PWSA contractor crews will also rebuild the alleyway after structural deficiencies were found during sewer work.
