Westinghouse Flood Gate, construction starting in 1937-1938, and closing in 1989, was used to to prevent catastrophic floods within the Turtle Creek valley. The project was the result of a 1907 flood, the St. Patrick’s Day Flood of 1936 and another flood in May 1946 that brought back flow from the Monongahela River into the Turtle Creek valley. It was estimated that $56,000 would need to be spent to maintain the project. The floodgate and pumps underneath the Westinghouse Bridge had been rendered useless due to silt buildup which resulted in its abandonment.
