Another car, “The Abraham Lincoln,” is a dining car that will accompany. The cars will be parked directly in front of the Pavilion on Allegheny Avenue. Unfortunately, spectators will not be permitted inside the cars. There will also be reserved parking spaces along Allegheny Avenue and Allegheny River Boulevard for those with disabilities.
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

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

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.
