Nine Mile Run Watershed Association is a grassroots success story. Born 20 years ago from a vision of clean and ecologically intact waterways that connect our neighborhoods to the river, we have evolved from an artist-led university project to a nonprofit with a long record of advocacy, education, implementation, and partnership that has advanced regional green infrastructure efforts beyond the watershed boundaries.

A Message from the Executive Director Brenda Smith

As municipalities and authorities are stepping up their efforts, we are also reassessing our position. We see our approaching twentieth anniversary as a time to celebrate our successes and recommit to the organization’s vision and mission with a new sense of urgency. While much progress has been made in the past 20 years, much work remains to be done to steward and protect the Nine Mile Run restoration area, and to achieve a healthy ecological balance throughout our watershed. We now see clear evidence of climate change in the restoration area, and the negative impacts are increasing. The position of the stream at the bottom of a highly urbanized watershed means that the restoration area will be continually under threat from upstream impacts, and even more so as the number and intensity of rain events increases. At the same time, we recognize that the problems of our watershed do not stand in isolation, and that advocacy at a regional scale is required. The problems we have grappled with in Nine Mile Run are also faced by many other communities. We will continue our outreach efforts to neighboring communities in the region that face similar issues. Nonprofit action and advocacy are essential to help define the issues and demonstrate sustainable solutions that will benefit all people in the region. We will continue to shape the watershed’s future for the next 20 years and beyond; this strategic plan sets the agenda for the next four years.

Our Vision for the Future

Our vision for the future guides both what we do and how we do it. It is important to revisit our vision and mission to understand our direction over the next 4 years.

OUR We envision a region with clean water accessible to all, healthy and resilient communities, and ecosystems restored to their natural functions.


OUR We restore and protect our watershed ecosystem, while working regionally to support and implement resilient solutions for a healthy urban environment.


We envision a future where the entire three rivers watershed is healthy. We envision communities that have access to safe, clean drinking water, are safe from flooding, basements backups, and landslides. We envision that these benefits are equitably distributed. We embrace a One Water approach, which holds that water should be managed sustainably and in an inclusive manner “to build strong economies, vibrant communities, and healthy environments,” (US Water Alliance). We also recognize that climate change is a threat to our communities on many levels and that ever larger and more intense rainstorms present a huge challenge to community resilience and clean water throughout the region.


STRATEGY We implement green infrastructure projects throughout our shed while working to educate public officials, the general public, and young people.


We build capacity for the community to become stewards of and advocates for the shed.

We strive to “get our shed done” so that the Nine Mile Run watershed is truly a model for how to achieve equity, water quality, and resilience in urban watersheds. In the lower shed, we are the stewards of a $7.7 million restoration of the Nine Mile Run stream by the US Army Corps, completed in 2006. This incredible resource serves as classroom, inspiration, and model of sustainable water stewardship. In our upper shed, we assist multiple upstream municipalities as they strive to implement sustainable stormwater solutions that serve the community and contribute to our One Water solutions. Our skillful demonstration of One Water solutions and sustainable stormwater management will give us a position of strength from which we can leverage regional advocacy.

We advocate regionally for policies and funding for sustainable water management strategies that prioritize clean water for all in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Strategic Plan



Our Geography We are fundamentally a place-based organization. An understanding of our sewershed is critical to understanding the strategy of the organization.


Sewershed Boundary

Lower Shed: Frick Park


The area in Frick Park where the stream is above ground and where the restoration work occurred. This is the lowest point in the sewershed and watershed. All water in the shed eventually flows through the lower shed and into the Monongahela River.


Frick Park


Nine Mile Run (above ground) Nine Mile Run (below ground)

Upper Shed: Municipalities The entire sewershed and watershed area above the lower shed that collects the stormwater and combined sewage that flows into the lower shed of Nine Mile Run. Everything that happens here impacts the lower shed and the stream.

Sewershed Boundary

The Nine Mile Run restoration area sits in Frick Park, at the bottom of the Nine Mile Run watershed and sewershed. Our shed is divided among several municipalities - principally Pittsburgh, Wilkinsburg, Swissvale and Edgewood. It is also fed by two different kinds of sewer systems - combined (where stormwater and sanitary sewage flow in the same pipe) and municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) (where there are separate pipes for stormwater and sanitary sewage). The primary source of sewage entering the Nine Mile Run stream is the combined sewer system in Pittsburgh. However, since much of the watershed has separated storm sewers (the MS4 communities), heavy rains carry any trash and other pollutants on the streets into the storm sewers and directly into Nine Mile Run. During major rain events, the stream spreads out across the floodplain, which is exactly what was intended in the re-design of the stream when it was restored between 2003 and 2006. But the more frequent and more intense storms we have experienced over the last few years due to climate change have carried more trash, and deposited it over a wider area, than ever before, damaging the restoration area, increasing maintenance costs and requiring costly repairs. The best way to protect the restoration area and the lower watershed is to work in the upper shed to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff reaching Nine Mile Run. The most effective way to do this is to use GSI to store and remove stormwater in the separated portions of the shed (the MS4 communities of Wilkinsburg, Swissvale and Edgewood) to attenuate flows that are overwhelming the stream, and in the combined sewer portions of the shed to reduce sewer overflows. The Oakwood Batavia project in Homewood removes on average 1 million gallons of stormwater from the combined sewer every year, keeping sewage out of Nine Mile Run. (Board member and advocate Zinna Scott.)

Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Strategic Plan



What’s Going Into Nine Mile Run

Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Separate pipe systems carry stormwater directly to Nine Mile Run and sanitary sewage to the treatment plant.

Nine Mile Run is impacted by combined sewer systems, primarily in Pittsburgh to West and by Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) primarily to the East. These two types of systems impact the stream in different ways. ALCOSAN’s planned plant and gray infrastructure improvements will address some, but not all, of these impacts. Green infrastructure will solve problems that gray infrastructure cannot, particularly in the MS4 communities of the upper shed.

Stormwater and sanitary sewage flow in the same pipe system to the treatment plant, but sometimes overflow to Nine Mile Run.

ALCOSAN’s planned investments in plant capacity and gray infrastructure under the Consent Decree will help to reduce combined sewer overflows.

In wet weather, rain mixing with sewage overwhelms the pipe and combined sewage flows into Nine Mile Run. This is the main way sewage gets into the stream.

Combined Sewer

In dry weather, sewage is diverted to the treatment plant.

Rainwater always flows directly to the stream without treatment. These flows overwhelm the stream restoration area with large volumes of water carrying trash and polluted runoff from roadways & parking lots. ALCOSAN’s planned gray infrastructure investments will not address this problem. Climate change will continue to make this problem worse.

Storm Sewer

Combined Sewer System

Some sanitary sewage can get into the storm system from improperly connected sanitary lines. Municipalities are working to eliminate these sources. Green infrastructure captures stormwater before it enters the system and can help reduce the volume of storm water reaching the stream.

Green infrastructure captures stormwater before it enters the system and can help reduce combined sewer overflows, helping to keep sewage out of the stream.

During major rain events, even sanitary sewers can overflow into Nine Mile Run. Some stormwater gets into the sanitary system from improperly connected drains and downspouts or ground water infiltrating through old, cracked pipes. Municipalities are working to eliminate these sources, which will reduce sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs).

Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Strategic Plan



Our Context We still have work to do in Nine Mile Run Watershed.

We need a new, comprehensive shed management plan. We need to continue to manage larger efforts, work with municipalities, and create a community of support around individual and municipal action.

Climate change is having an increasing impact on the restoration area and our communities.

More frequent and intense storms are our new normal. Distributed networks of green infrastructure throughout our shed will help address theses threats. The nonprofit community must take a leadership roll in implementing these networks.

Management of water resources and stormwater in particular is highly fragmented in the region and likely to remain so.

A regional stormwater authority and fee are needed to manage stormwater, but regionalization recommendations have stagnated due to a lack of political will. In the interim, grassroots activities and advocacy will continue to be important to creating political will around sustainable stormwater management.

We can help build a network for regional stormwater management to create the political will to address stormwater regionally.

Stormwater management is underfunded and undercapitalized. Green solutions are the most underfunded

We advocate for funding streams to support GSI, and for stormwater ordinances that trigger greater investment in GSI.

The success of the Parks Referendum in November 2019 is a potential game changer for the restoration area.

We partner with Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy and the Department of Public Works to maintain and complete the restoration area.

Public sector investment has been slow to materialize, especially in smaller municipalities. ALCOSAN and PWSA will make significant investments as a result of the consent decree, but investments are focused exclusively on reducing sewer overflows. Capital investment at PWSA over this strategic plan period will be in its priority sewersheds, which do not include Nine Mile Run. Only 3-5% of ALCOSAN’s investments under the consent degree will go to fund green solutions.

The passage of the referendum will allow more investment in parks and in GSI in parks as well as improved maintenance. A number of projects in Nine Mile Run for which some planning was done, but which were never implemented, including Regent Square Gateway Project (or Nine Mile Run Threshold Project), energy dissipation at the main discharge, and improvements to retain flow in Falls Ravine, may now become possible.


We need to continue to hold agencies accountable for green and sustainable water solutions.

Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Strategic Plan



Our Work

Where we’ve been

Where we’re going

In the 2014-16 strategic plan, the big picture goal was to get the sewage out of the Nine Mile Run stream. This goal led us to focus on the combined sewer section of our sewershed (primarily City of Pittsburgh) and was the genesis of the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project (RRRP). This work is still important, and has carried through both the 2017-19 plan and the 2020-23 plan.

The 2020-23 plan continues the work of these previous plans, but with a deliberate re-focusing on the impacts of the MS4 systems and the needs of those communities in the watershed. The nature of the regulatory requirements governing MS4s leads MS4 communities to focus on gray solutions - like lining sewer pipes - to keep stormwater and ground water out of the sanitary system. Currently, they ignore the impact of stormwater flowing out of the storm sewer system on the water quality of receiving streams. Taking a more holistic view, we recognize that eliminating combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), while important to water quality, will not alone achieve the level of water quality we all desire. Stormwater runoff throughout the region must be addressed, particularly in separated communities.

In the 2017-2019 strategic plan, our two overarching goals were to maintain our impact in the Nine Mile Run watershed and to leverage our experience to expand regionally and support efforts to improve and steward regional watersheds and regional water quality.

Assistant Director Mike Hiller leading a group of volunteers on a stream cleanup in Frick Park.

The restored stream suffers from the ill effects of excessive stormwater runoff, including both sewer overflows and the extreme volume and velocity of stormwater flows during every major rain event. Over time this has resulted in serious damage to some portions of the restored stream. In 2009, and again between 2015-2018, we raised money to complete needed repairs – more than $50,000 each time. The increase in the amount and intensity of rain guarantees that future repairs will be needed. But it is more difficult to find the needed funds each time. Adding green infrastructure in the upper shed will reduce the volume of stormwater reaching the stream and the need for costly repairs. This will be a major focus of this strategic plan.

This focus on MS4 communities fits well with our history, experience, expertise, and existing grant commitments. Moreover, since much of Allegheny County, outside the City of Pittsburgh, is comprised of MS4 communities, developing sustainable solutions in these communities will make an important contribution to the regional stormwater conversation.

We will implement stormwater projects in the upper shed of Nine Mile Run, based on the Watershed Hydrology Report completed in 2019, demonstrating the value of GSI for water quality and flood reduction in separated communities and protecting the restoration area. We will continue our work on the Rosedale Runoff Reduction Project, which reduces sewage entering Nine Mile Run, moving into the next phase of design and implementation. Because these projects intersect with PWSA’s A42 sewershed, which is a priority sewershed, we will use this as the basis for engaging with the PWSA planning process. We will refocus our efforts on the under-resourced MS4 communities in our shed, continuing our work from the NMR Stormwater Partnership. Where appropriate we will leverage these resources to assist neighboring MS4 sheds, advocating for green solutions in separated communities that can address both water quality and flooding. We will also take a holistic approach that addresses climate change and environmental justice.

Based on our prior maintenance and implementation work with StormWorks and Landforce, we will make the case that GSI can be maintained and functional long term, looking at the links between design and long term maintenance costs, and continuing to advocate regionally for systemic and holistic stormwater solutions.

Nine Mile Run Watershed Association Strategic Plan




We implement green stormwater infrastructure projects to protect our shed. Our goals are to improve the water quality of the Nine Mile Run stream, to achieve clean, safe, affordable water throughout the region, and to restore the relationship between the natural and the built environments of our communities. To accomplish this goal, we implement green solutions that reduce the volume of stormwater reaching Nine Mile Run and other regional water ways, while addressing erosion, flooding, and basement backups. We plan, design, build, operate, monitor, and maintain green stormwater infrastructure projects of all sizes.


We educate people about our watershed and how to protect it. Our goal is to educate people - homeowners, residents, school children and public officials - about what they can do to implement and advocate for regenerative solutions that improve regional water quality, sustain healthy communities, and provide access to clean affordable water for all.


We advocate for system change that protects the region’s water and promotes access to clean water as a human right. Our goal is to create a system that equitably protects the region’s water. Ultimately to protect water quality, we must change the system of stormwater management in our region. And, as rates rise to pay for infrastructure upgrades required by regulators, the burden will be greater for low-income ratepayers. We will be a leading advocate, convener and resource provider for GSI and for an equitable One Water approach to water management both in the Nine Mile Run Watershed and regionally. We will also work with allies to secure safe, affordable, and publicly controlled drinking water throughout the region.
