FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
The purpose of this project is to replace two existing (2 million gallon) tanks with one new 5 million gallon tank. The existing tanks are nearly 50 years old, do not meet current seismic structural design criteria, and are in need of repair. The city plans to construct a new tank that is structurally sound and provides more water efficiently to the city. Additionally, a well house will be located adjacent to the tank. This will replace the existing well house located northwest of the new tank.
We had a progress meeting with our consultant on June 1, 2017. We received 60% drawings from our consultant at the meeting and are reviewing the plans now. We are still on schedule to bid out this project in early July. We are planning for construction to begin in early August 2017. We anticipate the new tank to be ready to put into service before the high water demands hit in the summer of 2018. In a few months, after the tank is under construction, we will begin planning for the Flat Iron Well drilling that will begin late summer 2018. For more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074 or Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
PALMER WELL PROJECT:
We have contracted with Rhino Pumps to replace the pump for the well. It will take a few weeks for the pump to be delivered and installed. We hope to have the well work completed by late July. For more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074 or Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
STORM DRAIN MASTER PLAN UPDATE:
We have provided requested information to Hansen, Allen & Luce, Inc., to begin the master plan work. We are continuing to update the storm drain GIS data and obtain information on the detention basin outlet structures for the master plan work. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
DRY CREEK MASTER PLAN STUDY:
We met with Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) to finalize details of the scope and budget for the project. We have meet with individuals from various departments in the City and in Salt Lake County to identify needs and discuss a plan for Dry Creek through the Cairns downtown mall area. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
DRY CREEK CONCEPT PLAN:
We gave a presentation on May 24, 2017 to the Cairns Steering Committee with an update on the Dry Creek Concept Plan. We reviewed the overall plan and phasing for the Dry Creek corridor from Monroe Street to 300 East. We also presented a preliminary design for Phase 2 (from Monroe Street to Centennial Parkway) which is scheduled to be complete in the fall. We walked Dry Creek with Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) to identify the existing channel stabilization issues and complete a plan-in-hand site review for the design between Monroe and Centennial Parkway. (Phase 2) BCA will be completing a 30% design of Phase 2 and the Conceptual Plan report for review by the City. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
SANDY CANAL STORM DRAIN - 9400 SOUTH TO 9800 SOUTH:
We received and reviewed a draft Interlocal Agreement prepared by Salt Lake County that details the construction, cost sharing, and maintenance for the project. We are scheduling a meeting with the County to discuss the details of the agreement. Once we have worked out details for the agreement, we will start design of the storm drain project along the canal corridor. If you would like more information, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
WILD CREEK WATERLINE PROJECT:
The project bid opening was on May 11, 2017. We received three bids. The lowest bids were from contractors that did not meet the qualification requirements. Therefore, we are planning to complete the waterline crossing under Little Cottonwood Road in-house and postpone the remainder of the project. The Public Utilities construction crew started work on June 7, 2017 and will complete the work by June 9, 2017.
