Oakmont Trick or Treating
Monday October 31st
6pm to 8pm
Please turn your lights on if you are passing out candy
To the Residents of Oakmont Commons and All Other Oakmont Residents Who Were Flooded Last Night:
Please be patient with us. We received 1" of rain in less than an hour last night, which is an extraordinary rain event. We also had a rather severe drenching last Thursday, which has kept the ground wet. In addition to the water pooling issues at the Commons, there are residents all over town whose homes were flooded last night.
We are trying to address every problem that is in our control to address. However, we cannot continue to take the volume of calls that have been coming in to the Borough Office since this morning. If you think there is a problem that we are unaware of, please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure the problem is addressed to the best of our collective abilities. We have been all over town many times since the rain started last night and are already aware of most of the problems involving public property.
It is our job to serve the Borough and its residents to the best of our abilities. Rest assured we are diligently trying to do exactly that right now.
Thank you, once again, for your patience.
Lisa Cooper Jensen
Oakmont Borough Manager
Oakmont Water Quality
For those of you who may have concerns about lead in our water system, here's what the people who purify our water for drinking, the Oakmont Water Authority, has to say:
The Water Authority on Allegheny Avenue purifies our drinking water. The Borough’s Wastewater Treatment Plant at the bottom of Ann Street purifies the water that goes back into the river. For residents interested in a more detailed understanding of our Water Plant, the OWA has provided the Borough with a very thorough explanation of how our water is purified, a schematic drawing of the Water Purification Plant at the end of Allegheny Avenue, and their 2015 Water Quality Report including Test Results. If you would like copies, please contact the Borough Office (#412.828.3232 or email@example.com
Proposed Kayak Launch in Oakmont
Borough Council is considering a proposal from Friends of the Riverfront and the Oakmont Recreation Board to develop a kayak launch on the Borough-owned property at 1045 Allegheny Avenue. Environmental Planning and Design recently prepared a Kayak Launch Feasibility Study
on various sites in the community. The site at 1045 Allegheny Avenue is a brownfield that was previously remediated under the supervision of Pennsylvania DEP. To view a June 2014 report on the clean-up of the site, click here

FIOS IN OAKMONT
Oakmont residents should be advised that the Borough does not yet have a contract with Verizon to provide FIOS in our town. We have been told repeatedly by Verizon officials that "when they're ready" they will send us a contract to sign for this service. The Borough of Oakmont is not
responsible for our residents not being able to obtain FIOS from Verizon. The Borough of Oakmont has informed Verizon to Cease and Desist
from claims that the Borough of Oakmont is preventing them from providing FIOS to its residents.
