Event Description
Join the discussion about stormwater improvements in Volunteers Field The Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority is rebuilding Pittsubrgh's stormwater management system to create safe, flood-prepared neighborhoods. The project in Volunteers Field is the first of two early stormwater improvement projects happening in Saw Mill Run. It is part of the larger Saw Mill Run Integrated Watershed Management Plan to reduce pollution and stormwater runoff within the Saw Mill Run Watershed. Volunteers Field is an optimal location to treat stormwater drainage using green stormwater infrastructure. The preliminary design of the project is underway to determine feasible locations for capturing stormwater. This project will help to reduce sedimentation and improve water quality throughout Saw Mill Run and will manage stormwater within the park. Attend this meeting to learn about the project! Share ideas about preliminary design concepts, provide input to coordinate around park activities, and help shape the final project design.
