Given the importance of personal hygiene in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, we have suspended billing-related service shutoffs. We will continue to evaluate this suspsension period as more information becomes available. Please note that your water service may be temporarily interrupted for emergency work; however, we will strive to keep interruptions to a minimum.

We have turned water service back on for customers who were previously shutoff for non-payment. This includes customers whose water service was turned off for non-payment of sewer service, even if Pennsylvania American Water is not the sewer service provider. If your service has not yet been restored, contact us immediately at 800-565-7292.   Click Here for more information

This will include the hockey court, tennis court, basketball court, dog-park, and skate park. However, as the remainder of the park is utilized, park users should practice social distancing by staying at least six feet apart from each other. If residents choose to utilize playground equipment, park benches or other outdoor items with touch surfaces, proper hand washing and/or use of hand sanitizer is strongly encouraged before and afterward

Carnegie Borough joins the Allegheny County Health Department in encouraging the most vulnerable groups, which include the elderly, those with underlying medical conditions, and those who are currently sick, to avoid large events and mass gatherings, as well as other settings where there is close contact with a large group of people.

Carnegie Borough greatly appreciates all of the individuals who utilize and support this facility on a regular basis and ask for understanding during this time. Notifications on the park restriction status will be provided through Carnegie Borough's social media outlets. Thank you.

1. Paramedics and EMTs will begin questioning from a distance.

3. Paramedics and EMTs may ask the patient to place a surgical mask on to help protect the patient and keep the crew remain safe.

4. Please know that each ambulance is going through extensive cleaning and decontamination.

Carnegie Volunteer Fire Department 5K Run/Walk will not take place in 2020.

This has been a difficult decision to make, however we know that this is the right thing to do to ensure the safety of our participants, staff, volunteers, medical professionals, security personnel and spectators. In order to stay in compliance with government recommendations of social distancing and no more than 10 people in one place, this is necessary.

More information will be forthcoming for those that have already registered or sent in their sponsorships.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Click here for the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) dedicated page for information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Stop the Spread of Germs click here.

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

Share this information with your family, friends, and colleagues, so we can all do our part to protect our community.

This is a moment for preparation, not panic. A moment to be kind and generous. We know that each of us will do our part to stay vigilant, stay informed, and help limit the spread of this virus.

We will post updates as we are made aware of them. Carnegie will get through this together.




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.

Spring Giveaways are here!

These trees will help increase canopy cover to areas with significant canopy loss and ensure that Allegheny County's urban forest continues to grow.

Register to receive up to 2 trees per household:

April 3: Point Breeze/Shadyside

April 10: Oakland/Hill District

April 17: Squirrel Hill

April 18: FutureFest 2020

April 25: Baldwin/Brentwood/Whitehall/Pleasant Hills

CLICK HERE for more information.

Not sure what tree will work best for your yard? Check out the Arbor Day Foundation's Right Tree, Right Place.

Please take this opportunity to receive two free trees, courtesy of Tree Pittsburgh. We have been working with this group in Carnegie for some time now, and the condition of the native tree species we receive from them for our plantings are always of the highest quality and grow readily. The trees could add a new dimension to your home landscaping projects at no cost. Trees produce oxygen, absorb CO2, provide shelter and food for birds, give us shade in the summer, and they soak up stormwater, an important benefit, especially for Carnegie. - Carnegie Shade Tree Commission

Summary of Changes




BE COUNTED for 2020!

This year, you can complete your questionnaire online, by phone, or by mail.

A complete and accurate count impacts the
 amount of federal funding that communities receive for schools, healthcare, roads, housing, and more.

Help shape your future and your community's future by responding to the 2020 census today!


Every 10 years, the United States conducts a census of the entire population. This information is used to shape many aspects of our communities.




Click Here for more information



Participation Matters. For each family of five missed in the Census count, our area could lose $100,000 over the next 10 years.

Everyone Matters. Everyone needs to be counted, including all children born by April 1, 2020.

Requirements. The Census requires name, age, gender, birthday, race/ethnicity, relationship to head-of-household, owner or renter, and telephone number. The Census will NOT ask about citizenship or immigration status.

Information Will NOT Be Shared. The Census Bureau is committed to keeping your information confidential, private, and secure.

WHY IT MATTERS The census impacts every resident in Allegheny County. Data collected from the census helps define political districts, fuel research, inform planning and determine how much federal funding is allocated to support many of the services we rely on every day.


HOW IT WORKS - Online, By Phone, or Mail


Census questionnaires will be available in multiple languages including English, Arabic, French, Haitian Creole, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Tagalog, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
