Welcome . . .
The James G.
Fulton Flood Protection Project on
Chartiers Creek was constructed under
the authority of Section 204 of the
Flood Control Act of 1965 (Public Law
89-298 of the 89th Congress, S.2300).
The project is located on Chartiers
Creek in the City of Pittsburgh, the
Boroughs of Bridgeville, Carnegie,
Crafton, Heidelberg, Rosslyn Farms and
Thornburg, and the Townships of Collier,
Robinson, Scott and South Fayette in
Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Chartiers Creek flows into the Ohio
River at McKees Rocks, PA, approximately
2.6 miles downstream from the source of
the river at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The project provides flood protection by means of
a widened, deepened, and in some areas realigned channel and a major cutoff
channel. The project also included miscellaneous adjustments and improvements to
drainage lines, relocation and protection of sewer lines, utility alterations
and replacements, and bridge construction.
