1700 EAST STORM DRAIN REHABILITATION - PHASE I
A Notice to Proceed was issued on October 20, 2015 to Guaranteed Waterproofing and Construction (GWPC) for construction of the project. GWPC has installed approximately 60% of the centrifugally cast concrete liner in the 1700 East storm drain. The installation is taking longer than the contractor had originally thought, but we expect that it will be completed within the next couple of weeks. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
This next month we will begin to draft a Request for Proposals document to be used to select a consultant for this project. This fall we plan to select a firm to begin the design for a concrete tank that will replace the two steel tanks at Flat Iron Park. We anticipate the new tank to be built above ground in the same area as the existing tanks. It is planned that the new tank will be at least 5 million gallons and will have the same height as the existing tanks. If you would like more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
UTAH POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (UPDES):
We have started using the Utilisync mobile app to complete Storm Water Pollution Prevention inspections and to send the inspection reports in the field. We are also mapping existing private storm water post-construction storm drain systems that have been installed since January 1, 2003. As part of the schedule we worked out with the State, this needs to be completed by May 1, 2016; however, we expect to complete it sooner. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
LONE PEAK EXPLORATORY WELL PROJECT:
We met with Loughlin Water Associates, LLC., the engineering consultant, to review the consultant's preliminary assessment of the geophysical data of nearby wells. We will prequalify contractors for the drilling of the exploratory well in the next few months and plan to begin drilling around October of this year. Loughlin Water has submitted contractor prequalification requirements for us to review and are currently working on the bidding documents. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:
The contractor has begun installation work within the utility easements on Fur Hollow Drive. They have boring equipment on site and are doing underground utility locating as they prepare to install 2-inch electrical conduit. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:
Potholing information was provided to Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) for use in the design of the storm drain. BCA has indicated that they have almost completed the 50% design drawings which they will provide to us for review once they are ready. We will review the drawings and meet with BCA to discuss and provide comments. The drawings for the storm drain will be incorporated with the Public Works Monroe Street Phase 4 Road Project. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:
Draper Parkway Detention and Piping -- Bids for the project were received and opened by Draper City on October 14, 2015. Draper City awarded the project to Staker Parson Companies who was the low bidder. Construction of the project will be managed by Draper City and we are coordinating closely with Draper during construction. We will be attending the pre-construction meeting on November 19, 2015 and we expect that the contractor will begin construction soon.
9400 South to 9800 South -- We met with representatives of the Canyons School District at Edgemont Elementary School to discuss options for a detention or retention pond on the school property. The representatives were excited about the project and asked that we do some conceptual level design work to layout a pond on the property to present it to the Canyons District School Board for approval. We will start looking at conceptual alternatives for the pond at this site. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
