Catch Basin repairs
The Authority’s Catch Basin Repair and Maintenance Project (which includes Arkansas, Annex, and parts of Pioneer, McNeely and connections at W. Liberty) will begin on Monday, February 8, 2021. Insight Pipe will work with the Borough police department to post No Parking signs where necessary. We don’t expect any major disruption of traffic patterns during this project which will last approximately 2 weeks (weather permitting).
2021 Stormwater Budget
We are committed to completing stormwater management projects, controlling sediment, contaminates and pollutants, implementing State and Federal clean water regulations, facilitating public education and public involvement and improving the water quality of the Saw Mill Run Watershed and the Ohio River. The 2021 budget has been passed by the Board and uploaded on here for your review. A list of our projects planned for 2021 and the grants awarded are shown in the budget. View the 2021 Budget here.
Successful MS4 Inspection
The Stormwater Authority is proud to announce that the Borough of Dormont passed the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s MS4 inspection with flying colors. We met every MCM requirement and have no violations. A perfect score is very rare for a Pennsylvania Municipality.
“Just wanted you to know how appreciative I’ve been of your updates throughout this project. Also, I want to comment on how professional the men have been who were working on Kelton and Texas Avenue. They have been very protective of children coming and going from school and also have been careful about our properties. I’m looking forward to being able to put our cars in our garage without them being flooded.” – Carol Nomides
“Thank you, Dormont Stormwater Committee, for living up to your promise to work on this project for the residents of the 1200 block of Kelton Avenue. They have been plagued for decades with stormwater surges that destroyed and totaled cars, flooded garages, basements, lost lawnmowers and other items in their homes, all because of an incorrectly installed sewer system when the borough was established. You are the first group who has taken responsibility for this need, and you are to be commended for all you are doing.” – Diane Moder
