Public Meeting #1 - 17 September 2018 @ Phipps Conservatory

PWSA’s first public meeting for the Four Mile Run Stormwater Improvement Project was on 17 September 2018 at Phipps Conservatory.  The meeting included a walking tour at 5:30pm that overlooked major project elements from the Panther Hollow Bridge and Anderson Bridge.  At 6:30pm meeting attendees had the opportunity browse the project boards and maps, learn about CSOs with the interactive CUSP kit, and build landforms in a digital sandbox.  At 7:00pm PWSA gave a presentation led by Executive Director Robert Weimar, Manager of Sustainability James Stitt, and Project Manager Megan Zeigler.  Following the presentation, attendees were invited to comment on the boards and ask questions of team members stationed throughout the room.

All materials presented at that meeting are available for download.

Special thanks to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for generously providing space for this meeting.  Special thanks also to Matt Mercurio of Civic Mapper who volunteered the use of a digital sandbox to simulate the flow of water over landforms.

Public Meeting #2 - Wednesday 14 November 2018 @ Saint John Chrysostom Catholic Church

On Wednesday, November 14th the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority hosted an interactive workshop that invited the public to give input into the preliminary design of Four Mile Run's stormwater improvements. Attendees had the opportunity to visit individual stations focusing on a specific part of the project. Each station focussed on the design concept and its constraints, and attendees were encouraged to ask questions and provide input and ideas that will help to determine the overall design of the project. The stations focussed on on the overall watershed expansion, Panther Hollow Lake, the streams and historic bridges throughout Schenley Park, the inclusion of public art, and mobility.

All materials presented at that meeting are available for download.

Special thanks to Saint John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church for generously providing space for this meeting.
