The Municipality of Mt. Lebanon will be constructing a storm swale on the Mt. Lebanon Public Golf Course, adjacent to hole number four and residential properties along Thornycroft Avenue and Thornwood Drive.
The swale, which will intercept storm water from four acres of municipal property and redirect it to a stream beyond nearby homes, is the culmination of a yearlong effort to address flooding in the area. Neighboring residents worked closely with the municipality on developing and implementing the project, which is one of several the municipality is completing to improve sanitary and stormwater infrastructure across Mt. Lebanon.
Work is set to begin at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, September 11 and continue daily on weekdays, weather permitting, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Tuesday, October 15. There is a possibility that the contractor will work on Saturdays.
Construction vehicles will stage near 49 Thornwood Drive and will not interfere with access to residential property. For your safety, please do not go near the equipment or near the construction site.
