9400 SOUTH/DRY CREEK RIPRAP PROJECT:

We solicited a construction bid from six contractors for this project. The apparent low bidder is Bowen Construction and we are now processing the contract, bonding, and insurance documents. We are also processing permit requirements since this work will be done in the channel of Dry Creek and needs a Stream Alteration Permit from the State, and a construction permit from the County (as Dry Creek is their facility). We issued the Notice-to-Proceed to the contractor and will be scheduling a pre-construction meeting. We are also processing the permit application with Salt Lake County. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.

PEPPERWOOD WELL ACID TREATMENT PROJECT:

We have met with Aqua Engineers to go over the design criteria. We placed a second advertisement for this project in the newspaper Sunday, April 6, 2014. So far we have some interest from the contractors. Bid opening is scheduled for April 15, 2014. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

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 have reviewed the project proposal and are issuing a Notice to Proceed to the consultant for plan development. We held a kick-off meeting with our consultant on Friday, February 28, 2014. The first task for the consultant is to evaluate the development plans in the area and determine when the storm drain improvements need to be completed. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

RICHARDS DITCH WELL REHABILITATION PROJECT 2014:

We have awarded the contract to Widdison Turbine Services, Inc., for the work to rehabilitate the Richards Ditch Well. We had a pre-construction meeting on March 5, 2014. The contractor is planning to mobilize the site and start the rehabilitation of the well. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

SANDY STORM WATER MODELING PROJECT:

We have secured the services of Hansen, Allen, and Luce (HAL) to perform an update and evaluation of our storm water model. We met with the consultants and they returned the system working maps so we can continue our on-going field verification. Their work is now complete for this project with the exception of doing the in-house training. This training will be scheduled for about a month from now. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.

9400 SOUTH WATER LINE I-15 CROSSING PROJECT:

The purpose of this project is to install an additional water feed to the system that is west of I-15. Presently we only have two waterlines that feed the west side of I-15. This project will install a 20" HDPE pipe inside an abandoned concrete pipe to provide this additional crossing. We held a bid opening for this project on April 3, 2014. There were six contractors submitting bids. The apparent low bidder is Noland & Son Construction Company, Inc. We issued the Conditional Notice of Award and are now processing the bonding and contract documents. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.

EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION TOWER PROJECT:

The top section of the tower has been sent to the fabrication shop so that the new brackets could be galvanized. The manufacturer had already galvanized the tower, but the metal brackets welded to the tower needed to be done. We are also coordinating with the City's IT department to add an additional antenna for direct communication with City Hall as a back-up to the fiber optics system. For further information or questions, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285. 

LONE PEAK WELL FEASIBILITY STUDY:

We are exploring the feasibility of moving the water rights from Cemetery Well to a new well that would be located on the south side of Dimple Dell Park in property owned by the City just north of Lone Peak Park. We have met with the Division of Water Rights to see if we can move the water rights. The State was very favorable but could not promise anything. We are looking at drilling a test hole to see if a new well would produce enough and good quality water before we move any water rights. If you would like more information on this project, please call Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:

We met with Draper City on April 3, 2014 to continue our discussion and negotiation for routing storm water flows to their detention basin from our Eastridge Detention Pond. We have also reached a verbal agreement with the private property owner on 700 East for an easement to route flows from Savannah Drive through the easement on his property to 700 East. After our walk-through with the owners last week and obtaining the blue stake information we performed an in-house analysis and modeling of the system to determine the pipe and storage sizing for the system. Our department employees will install this pipe once we have finalized the paperwork and legal documents to provide us the easement. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.

PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:

The contractor is now planning the roof pour for Thursday, April 10th. Representatives from the contractor, our engineering consultant, and the City attended the annual meeting of the Lost Canyon Estates Subdivision Homeowners Association on March 31, 2014. We took the opportunity at this meeting to update the nearby residents on the tank progress and schedule. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

WINDY PEAK STORM WATER PROJECT:

The contractor, Whitaker Construction mobilized on Monday, March 31st and started digging for the pipeline at Storm Mountain Park. They relocated the trees, removed curb, gutter and asphalt and are making the connection of the new storm water pipeline to the outlet structure in the Storm Mountain Detention Basin. They have cleared off the property where they will be staging for the project and are stockpiling materials. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
