New Tree Pits

rosedale st tree

Our work in the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project (RRRP) area continues as we aim to complete the first phase of the project by the end of 2016. A major component of the project is the planting of 40 street trees in stormwater management tree pits.

This month one of our contractors, Penn Landscape & Cement Work, completed the first four of these tree pits on Rosedale Street.  The process included several months of design revisions and meetings with the City of Pittsburgh Department of Public Works. The tree pits, planted with Black Gum trees, are designed to be lower than the street grade so they will capture street runoff through curb cuts for ground infiltration.

As part of the Buy zithromax liquid online, residents voiced their interest in adding green design elements to Rosedale Street. These tree pits are a first step.

Vacant Lot Cleanups

Also, in early April, Nine Mile Run staff worked with two volunteer groups to clean-up three vacant lots on the corner of Rosedale and Hill Streets, next to the Port Authority’s Wilkinsburg Busway parking lot.  With the help of 33 volunteers, over 100 trash bags were removed along with 15 tires!

The groups included students from Buy cialis online prescription on April 4, who removed over 60 bags of trash and nine tires. On April 12, international students from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Can i buy diflucan over the counter in australia finished cleaning up the lots, collecting more than 40 bags of trash and eight tires. The groups also toured the restoration area of the NMR stream in lower Frick Park before the clean-up to get a sense of where the trash would end up if it had not been cleaned up in the upper watershed.

Stay tuned for more projects in the Rosedale area!
