Pittsburgh's Water Future - through 2030 and beyond


Our water, our future.

Pittsburgh’s past, and its future, are tied to water. Mayor William Peduto asked the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority to draft a 12-year plan to explain our vision for Pittsburgh’s water future, through 2030 and beyond. We welcome the opportunity to share our vision and goals, and our plans to maintain our strong financial health and infrastructure investment projects with you.

This website showcases our plans for the future, and shares some behind-the-scenes photos of water infrastructure the public doesn’t get to see every day. We even dug into our archives for some historic photos of Pittsburgh’s water history. This is our water, and our future.
