The Dormont Stormwater Authority designs and constructs projects that make a difference in the lives of residents across the Borough of Dormont. Our community benefits when stormwater quickly drains off roads, flood risks to homes are reduced and the health of local streams are protected or improved.
Type of Projects:
Stormwater Drainage improvement projects repair, replace and install new storm drainage infrastructure when it deteriorates or cannot handle increases in stormwater.
Pollution Control Projects install, retrofit and maintain stormwater control measures to reduce pollution and control the volume and velocity of stormwater in developed watersheds.
Green infrastructure projects such as rain gardens and swales retain water onsite and let it discharge slowly in the system.
