Public Utilities Projects
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). Once the permits are obtained and the contract is processed, we will issue the Notice to Proceed. 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 anticipate that the design of this project will be finished in a few weeks and plan to bid out this project the end of March. The construction phase of the project will start in April. 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 will set up a meeting this week to kick-off the design. 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 to rehabilitate the Richards Ditch Well. The contract has been signed and we have issued a Notice to Proceed. We held a pre-construction meeting on Thursday, March 6, 2014. The contractor is planning to mobilize the site and start construction next week. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
GENERAL ENGINEERING SERVICES FOR 2014:
We have selected three engineering consultants (Bowen Collins & Associates, Hansen, Allen & Luce, and Aqua Engineering) to provide municipal engineering services for water, storm water, and streetlight projects during 2014. We have issued the Conditional Notice of Award. The contracts are being routed for signature. If you would like more information on this, 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 have coordinated further with UDOT for the permitting issues and are sending the design detail sheets showing the proposed project as related to the UDOT right-of-way to them. They have given verbal approval for the project and we are proceeding with the design as presented. We received the final review set of design drawings and specifications from the consultant and have been reviewing those in-house. We will be advertising this project for construction bids. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION TOWER PROJECT:
The tower base is installed and ready for installation of the tower. We are waiting for the delivery of the tower, which should be delivered in March. Since we are ordering only one pole that has to be manufactured, we have to wait until they tool up for that height of street light pole. 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 a team from the Salt Lake County Public Works Engineering Department and they agreed to take over the maintenance of the canal section for drainage through the White City area which is part of the unincorporated Salt Lake County drainage area. They will also check with their Parks Department to see if they are in agreement with our Parks Department for putting a trail through that same corridor. We are sharing the preliminary design data and survey data with the County. We delivered the full survey data to the consultants so they could review it in determing their proposed fee. We had the entire canal corridor surveyed previously and since this would be a major portion of their scope of work, they wanted to see the format of the data. We have received the final scope and fee proposal from the consultants for this project and are waiting for in-house approvals before processing the contract documents. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:
The contractor has finished pouring the columns and is planning on pouring the last section of the wall and valve vault walls later this week. The contractor has completed the shoring and will begin forming the tank roof. The contractor has also started tensioning the vertical tendons. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
WINDY PEAK STORM WATER PROJECT:
We held the bid opening on Thursday, March 6, 2014. Five contractors delivered qualified bids. We have an apparent low bidder and are now reviewing the bid in detail in order to issue the Conditional Notice of Award. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
