Brick restoration of a portion of Allegheny River Boulevard will begin on Monday, June 11, 2018. Crews will be working from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day. How many days the project will take will depend on the weather. The purpose of this construction is to restore and grade the bricks along the cartway of the Boulevard, from about the Oakmont Deli to the southern side of Washington Avenue. A trench and 2 corner catch basins will also be installed across Washington Avenue to help with our stormwater issues.
Borough Street Crews will be posting "No Parking" signs on both sides of the Boulevard from the Deli to the Kwik-e-Mart beginning Friday so that all is clear for work to begin.
Another summer construction project will also affect those driving along the Boulevard come August. Work will start then on the intersection of Allegheny River Boulevard and Pennsylvania Avenue. We will notify you in advance of new traffic routes and detours.
We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and disruption to all the residents and affected merchants, and ask for your patience and understanding.
Yard Waste Recycling
Yard Waste Recycling with Republic Services begins April 2nd until December 14th. All yard waste (other than bundled materials) must be in the Borough supplied 90-gallon brown container, anything in excess should be in a paper biodegradable bag. Yard waste consists of grass clippings, garden debris, hedge, shrubbery and tree trimmings.

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 Boroughâ€™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.
