The Water Center & PennPraxis Team Selected for Pittsburgh Stormwater Master Plan

AKRF is excited to be working with The Water Center, PennPraxis, and our other partners in preparing an industry-leading and inclusive stormwater master plan for the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority and City of Pittsburgh. AKRF is a strong proponent of the P4 principles (people, planet, place, and performance) that will serve as the framework in the development of the plan. “The Water Center and PennPraxis team are uniquely positioned to assist PWSA and the people of Pittsburgh in creating an inclusionary vision for stormwater management and the practical guidance to put it into practice,” stated Will Pickering, PWSA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Their focus on community engagement and policies that address local land use and equity issues will lead to a plan that reflects the challenges experienced in Pittsburgh.”
