CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN - PA/ARB
Construction is slated to begin next week at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Allegheny River Boulevard to install a trench drain and a new catch basin. Travelers may experience some disruption and rerouting in this area, and should plan their routes through town accordingly. Thank you.
LEAF COLLECTION BEGINS
Leaf Season starts on Wednesday, October 19 this year. Curbs raked between the sidewalk and the curb will be picked up by Borough Crews on a systematic basis until approximately the middle of December. You may also put your leaves in your yard waste containers for bi-weekly pick-up until December 12, 2016. Please do not rake your leaves into the street. This results in clogged catch basins and sometimes flooding. Recently-driven cars parked over dried leaves can also catch on fire.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
