PWSA South Side Park Stormwater Meeting

Want to know what’s happening next in the South Side Park master plan? Join PWSA’s project team on Tuesday January 23, 2024 for a virtual meeting to discuss design plans and upcoming construction impacts of the South Side Stormwater Project, which will begin in Spring 2024.

The South Side Park Stormwater Project aims to reduce combined sewer overflows caused by rain flows through the park, that make their way to ALCOSAN sewers and the Monongahela River. These overflows impact local water quality and overtax the sewer systems.

The goals of the project are as follows:
• Reduce combined sewer overflows into the river
• Reduce basement backups
• Slow down the flow of stormwater from higher elevation areas
• Work with local residents to understand the full scope of basement backups and neighborhood flooding

This project will involve partnerships with the City Department of Public Works and their implementation of the Southside Park Master Plan.
