About the Project:

Four Mile Run encompasses Schenley Park and several Pittsburgh neighborhoods including Greenfield, Hazelwood, Oakland, Squirrel Hill, and the Run. These neighborhoods and the park are located within the M-29 sewershed where all of the sewers flow to the same outfall, the 29th along the Monongahela River.

To help to reduce combined sewer overflows, basement backups, and neighborhood flooding, the Four Mile Run Stormwater Project will 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.
