City plans to improve Panther Hollow drainage
Share with others:
The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority on Tuesday awarded the city of Pittsburgh a loan of about $559,000 and a grant of about $59,000 for storm water-management improvements to Panther Hollow.
The aid was part of a $79 million package that the state awarded for water-related projects in 16 counties.
The city will work with Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy to create a wildflower meadow in a part of Schenley Park near Beacon and Bartlett streets.
The money also will be used to construct catch basins, install pipes and build swales, or mounds, to trap running water. Some of the swales will be built in the Schenley Drive area of the park.
