Election & Events Signs
When placing community event or election signs in your yard, please make sure that they are on your property, and not in Borough right-of-way. Borough right-of-way extends from the curb to approximately 5’ past the sidewalk. If you have no sidewalk, right-of-way is generally 10’-12’ behind the curb.
Thank you, Oakmont Borough Residents!

There will be a Public Meeting on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 7:00 PM in Oakmont Borough Council Chambers, 767 5th St., Oakmont, PA 15139. The purpose of the meeting is for the gas well drilling firm of Huntley & Huntley Energy Exploration, LLC to present information on seismic data acquisition, which they wish to perform in Oakmont Borough.

All interested parties are invited to attend.

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 email@example.com
FIOS IN OAKMONT
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.
