Meet Us In Schenley Park To Talk About Green Infrastructure Projects

August 11, 2017 by Lauryn Stalter

At the end of 2016, Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) released the City-Wide Green First Plan, a framework for using green infrastructure to address the stormwater issues that our city faces. One area perfectly poised to make a big impact? The Four Mile Run Watershed, which includes the neighborhoods of Greenfield, Squirrel Hill, Oakland, and Hazelwood.

Green infrastructure solutions like rain gardens, meadows, and tree plantings first over grey solutions like sewer expansions keeps our water clean and benefits our parks and neighborhoods.

The Four Mile Run project in Schenley Park is the perfect project to prove that green infrastructure will work to fix our region's sewage overflow problems. Join us at upcoming meetups to dive into designs for green infrastructure in Schenley Park. These designs are intended to decrease flooding in the Run, minimize combined sewer overflows, and improve the ecology of the Four Mile Run Watershed.
