MLK Field Green Stormwater Infrastructure
Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority has planned a green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) project at MLK Field to focus on stormwater management opportunities within the field and potentially downstream. MLK Field is located in the Terrace Village section of the Hill District and within the M-19 sewershed. The M-19 sewershed is a priority sewershed for PWSA; the proposed GSI practices will detain stormwater from new developments, surrounding hillsides, and impervious right-of-way areas.
Core Services Performed:
- Public Outreach
- Agricultural Planning
Client: Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority
Outreach & Support
In general, the Middle Hill has seen steady economic decline following its effective disconnection from downtown due to the construction of the Civic Arena. The GSI work will focus on stormwater management source control opportunities within MLK Field and potentially downstream.
