Borough of Carnegie / ALCOSAN – Broadway Street Storm Sewer Separation Project – Video Installment No. 1
The Borough of Carnegie has currently been working on Broadway Street between James Street and Mansfield Boulevard for the Broadway Street Storm Sewer Separation Project, which is being completed by W.A. Petrakis. The municipality received a grant from ALCOSAN for 85% of the project, which consists of a sewer separation to reduce CSO (Combined Sewer Overflow) volume and provide new storm sewer lines that can be expanded for future projects. In this video, Councilman Richard D'Loss and Mr. David Coldren of KLH Engineers will explain the current work being completed and the plans for the project moving forward. Please stay tuned for updates on this important infrastructure project within the Borough. Thank you!

ANDREW CARNEGIE FREE LIBRARY is OPEN
For our Carnegie neighbors, The Subscription drive for Carnegie has been sent out and we are already getting a lot of responses back and we appreciate it. There is however 1 small problem, on the small card that the resident keeps for their records, there is a space that says ID #. This is a misprint as there are no ID numbers for Carnegie residents. We apologize for any confusion.

Decals to help Emergency Service Personnel recognize those with special needs are available at the Carnegie Police Department and Carnegie Borough Administration office.
Oftentimes when first responders come in contact with a person with special needs during an emergency situation, they are unaware that the person actually has special needs. The idea for the decal is to help first responders better deal with special needs individuals by knowing in advance the person has special needs.

The Borough of Carnegie is in the process of amending the current Municipal Zoning Ordinance (Ord. No 2445).

Steps to Take:
Know the symptoms: COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath - and may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Person-to-person spread mainly occurs via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, like the flu. A less common form of transmission can take place from objects or surfaces that become infected.
Take precautions: If you are sick, stay home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Cover your cough or sneeze. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. If you have recently traveled in an area with COVID-19 infections or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 and are showing symptoms, monitor your health and contact your doctor.
Plan ahead: Make sure you have extra food, medical supplies, and emergency kits in your home. Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors to develop emergency plans - particularly for children, seniors, and anyone with chronic medical conditions that may make them particularly susceptible to illness.
Stay informed: Stick with trusted and official sources for accurate and timely updates including CDC.gov and health.pa.gov
