Oakmont Trick or Treating

Monday October 31st

6pm to 8pm

Please turn your lights on if you are passing out candy

To the Residents of Oakmont Commons and All Other Oakmont Residents Who Were Flooded Last Night:

Please be patient with us. We received 1" of rain in less than an hour last night, which is an extraordinary rain event. We also had a rather severe drenching last Thursday, which has kept the ground wet. In addition to the water pooling issues at the Commons, there are residents all over town whose homes were flooded last night.

We are trying to address every problem that is in our control to address. However, we cannot continue to take the volume of calls that have been coming in to the Borough Office since this morning. If you think there is a problem that we are unaware of, please feel free to email me at: ljensen@oakmontborough.com and I will make sure the problem is addressed to the best of our collective abilities. We have been all over town many times since the rain started last night and are already aware of most of the problems involving public property.

It is our job to serve the Borough and its residents to the best of our abilities. Rest assured we are diligently trying to do exactly that right now.

Thank you, once again, for your patience.

Lisa Cooper Jensen
Oakmont Borough Manager

Oakmont Water Quality

For those of you who may have concerns about lead in our water system, here's what the people who purify our water for drinking, the Oakmont Water Authority, has to say:

The Water Authority on Allegheny Avenue purifies our drinking water. The Borough’s Wastewater Treatment Plant at the bottom of Ann Street purifies the water that goes back into the river. For residents interested in a more detailed understanding of our Water Plant, the OWA has provided the Borough with a very thorough explanation of how our water is purified, a schematic drawing of the Water Purification Plant at the end of Allegheny Avenue, and their 2015 Water Quality Report including Test Results. If you would like copies, please contact the Borough Office (#412.828.3232 or mdimatteo@oakmontborough.com).

Proposed Kayak Launch in Oakmont

Borough Council is considering a proposal from Friends of the Riverfront and the Oakmont Recreation Board to develop a kayak launch on the Borough-owned property at 1045 Allegheny Avenue. Environmental Planning and Design recently prepared a Kayak Launch Feasibility Study on various sites in the community. The site at 1045 Allegheny Avenue is a brownfield that was previously remediated under the supervision of Pennsylvania DEP. To view a June 2014 report on the clean-up of the site, click here.

Recreation Board Brick Campaign

The Oakmont Recreation Board is conducting another commemorative brick campaign. Those interested in purchasing a brick, paver or commemorative bench should fill out the form linked here, and submit it to the Borough Offices.


Oakmont residents should be advised that the Borough does not yet have a contract with Verizon to provide FIOS in our town. We have been told repeatedly by Verizon officials that "when they're ready" they will send us a contract to sign for this service. The Borough of Oakmont is not responsible for our residents not being able to obtain FIOS from Verizon. The Borough of Oakmont has informed Verizon to Cease and Desist from claims that the Borough of Oakmont is preventing them from providing FIOS to its residents.

Oakmont...small town charm, big city choices!

In 1889 Oakmont was incorporated from the second ward of the Borough of Verona with 1,600 residents, a dozen stores and four sizable industries: Allegheny Valley Railroad, Dexter Spring Company, Verona Tool Works and the Agnew Glass Company. In 2014 Oakmont proudly celebrates 125 years of incorporation as a borough.

Oakmont is a borough of 1.57 square miles of small hills and wooded areas 14 miles northeast of the city of Pittsburgh in Southwestern Pennsylvania nestled near Plum Creek and along the Allegheny River. As of the 2010 Census, the borough has a population of 6,303. Oakmont is governed by a council of 7 elected volunteer community leaders who employ a manager and work collaboratively with an elected volunteer mayor and an appointed chief of police, police officers and a volunteer fire department. more
