From Carrick Borough's past this is an assortment of utility covers. Can you find where they all are? Carrick was the first borough to install sanitary sewer systems in Allegheny County. Where the borough's sewer system tied into adjoining municipal sewers the covers show them.

This one is located at 2314 Brownsville Road.

This one is marked "Knoxville Borough LH" and is located on the sidewalk at the intersection of Madeline Street and Brownsville Road in the heart of Carrick Borough. Could it be that Carrick Borough borrowed this cover from Knoxville Borough?
