ABOUT PROJECT 15206
PROJECT 15206 is a collaborative effort between community, government, corporate, academic, and philanthropic leaders to combat these problems by implementing sustainable, high impact stormwater mitigation installations throughout the City of Pittsburgh’s 15206 zip code in 2014-2015.The goal of the project is to improve water quality and reduce stormwater flows into our region’s combined sewer system, thus preventing flash floods and lowering costs for residents. Led by the Penn State Center, Pittsburgh Community Services, Inc. and the Office of State Senator Ferlo, this is a demonstration project for the 15206 zip code with the potential to spark related projects across the Pittsburgh area.
