The Nine Mile Run Watershed is a small urban watershed located in Pittsburgh’s East End. Covering just 6.5 square miles, the watershed is home to numerous exciting initiatives, including the largest urban stream restoration in the United States completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Nine Mile Run Watershed Association (NMRWA) complements this physical transformation with a variety of innovative urban ecology projects designed to directly involve the community in helping to improve the health of the watershed.
Nine Mile Run Watershed Association aims to restore and protect the Nine Mile Run watershed. Through outreach and education, they involve local leaders and volunteers in community greening initiatives to foster a healthy urban environment.
