The Negley Run sewershed is 3,300 acres of dense, urban neighborhood development with only 10% of its land area covered by park or park-like forested conditions. Washington and Negley Run Boulevards are major traffic arteries that serve the surrounding neighborhoods. They are also primary drainage corridors within the watershed, and they capture the largest volume of stormwater of any city sewershed.
ALCOSAN's typical year analysis reveals 66 overflow activations of the A42 Outfall for a total of 1,085 hours of overflow discharge accounting for 777 million gallons of overflow.
