Pittsburgh had one of its wettest years in 2018. Unprecedented levels of rainfall swell the three rivers that intersect at the city (Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio), putting a strain on water infrastructure. So investments are being planned to avoid the risk of flooding and the malfunctioning of the sewage system. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the river system of regional locks and dams, has announced a new investment of $123.7 million for 2019. It joins the $88 million allocated by the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority to redevelop its own water network throughout the city. These investments are necessary to upgrade an infrastructure that is considered too old and inadequate to respond to the increase in rainfall that has hit the city in recent years.
