Public Utilities Projects



We received a bid from KK&L Administration to replace three galvanized services using directional drilling on 7800 South at 560 East, 570 East, and 574 East. These services are each approximately twelve feet deep. The contractor has already completed all work on this project and has demobilized the site. Once we receive the final pay request along with all necessary paperwork, we will close out this project. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 


We held a scoping meeting with Bowen Collins & Associates and processed the Notice to Proceed for this project. We then held a kick-off meeting with them, Salt Lake County Engineering, Public Works, and representatives from administration to coordinate the three different projects that are all affected by the resultant study. BCA is quickly performing the preliminary hydraulic and hydrologic analysis to get some numbers that we can work with, and then they will finalize the report/study. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.


The contractor has finished restoring asphalt on Parkland Drive. They have been installing a water main on Sandy Parkway to approximately 8485 South. They are planning to flush that portion of the water main and perform a bacterial sampling test and pressure test next week. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.


Bowen Collins & Associates has provided us with a proposal to develop a design to improve the storm drain system in the Monroe Street/10000 South area. These improvements are in accordance with the recommendations in a memo concerning the impacts of the Central Business District Development on the storm water system. We held a meeting with our consultant to discuss the progress of the design. We still need to do some verifications and camera work on existing pipe. We are hoping to reduce the overall pipe size of the storm drain line. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.


We had a meeting with Kyle Widdison, owner/manager of Widdison Turbine to go over the project. Because of the complication and the uniqueness of this project, we have extended the contract time from June 30, 2014 to November 14, 2014. The contractor has removed all of the equipment from the site and will be bringing in a 120 ton crane in an attempt to pull the casing. If the casing can successfully be pulled, they will start the new gravel pack. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 


We have received an approved UDOT permit for work in 700 East and are working with utility companies to relocate a couple of conflicting utilities. Public Utilities drainage division employees are scheduled to start construction on Monday, October 20, 2014. Lyndon Jones started construction this week on the Riparian to Sunburn Lane project. They will be completing work in the roadway in order to place asphalt before temperatures drop too low. A Notice to Proceed has been provided to Hansen, Allen & Luce (HAL) for the 9400 South to 9800 South portion of the project. We walked along the canal this week with HAL to review site conditions and pipes discharging to the canal. HAL is working on conceptual alternatives for the project. HAL has prepared and provided easement descriptions to the city for the Draper Detention and Piping project. We plan to meet with HAL to review the easements. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Rod Sorensen at 801-568-7297.


The site landscaping and grassing has been completed. This past week our operators filled and overflowed the tank so that we could check the overflow piping. There were no issues with the overflow test. The electrician should be finished with his work this week. The gate delivery has been delayed so we have scheduled our walk through for next week. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.


The contractor has completed the project punch list items. We understand that next week the contractor will provide us with all remaining closeout documents, video of storm drain, approved change order, and final pay request. We will review the video of the storm drain and complete another final walk through after which time the project can be closed out. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
