ALCOSAN Partnership Agreement
Rich Fitzgerald, Allegheny County executive, talks about the importance of partnership between the federal and local governments to support communities at the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority (ALCOSAN) office prior to the signing of a Public Partnership Agreement in Pittsburgh, Jan. 11, 2023. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers signed the agreement with ALCOSAN to approve funding to construct a grit chamber along Spring Garden Run, a neighborhood located in the northern area of Pittsburgh. The grit chamber construction is estimated to cost approximately $4.3 million and expected to finish by the end of 2024. Once implemented, the chamber will remove 200,000 pounds of grit and sediment annually from the sewer system that causes long-term damage to treatment facilities.
