The Nine Mile Run watershed is a small urban watershed located in Pittsburgh’s East End.
Covering just 6.5 square miles, the watershed is home to numerous exciting initiatives, including the largest urban stream restoration in the United States completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association (NMRWA) complements this amazing physical transformation with a variety of innovative urban ecology projects designed to directly involve the community in helping to improve the health of the watershed.
At NMRWA, we see urban neighborhoods and residents as important parts of the natural world – not separate from it.
This philosophy is helping us transform our urban watershed one resident, one home, and one neighborhood at a time. Every effort counts, so check out our Get Involved page and see what you can do to make a difference!
You can also read up on what the Nine Mile Run Watershed is, our mission to protect it, who are amazing staff are, and our StormWorks team, which sells rain barrels, installs rain gardens, and more to support our mission.
