LONE PEAK EXPLORATORY WELL PROJECT:

We have received proposals from three engineering firms which were distributed to and reviewed by selection committee members. The members of the committee met and evaluated the proposals together. Loughlin Water Associates, LLC was selected for the project. The contract has been finalized and we met with the consultant to coordinate and begin work on the project. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

PALMER WELL REHABILITATION

We visited the contractor's shop to review the condition of the pump and the repairs that will be needed. Since repairs to the old pump are nearly the same cost as replacing the pump, we have decided to replace the pump. The cost for a new pump is within the allowance that was set forth in the contract for repairs to the old pump and column. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:

The Public Utilities department has received three proposals from engineering firms to assist us with the design and construction management of the 2015 Streetlight Project. We held a kickoff meeting on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. The consultant has visited each of the installation locations and will proceed with the design phase. We anticipate that the 50% design drawings will be submitted to the City for review on February 20, 2015. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

DRY CREEK HYDROLOGY STUDY:

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.

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

We met with Bowen, Collins and Associates to discuss design of the storm drain. We are scheduled to meet with Public Works to coordinate construction of the storm drain and the Monroe Street widening and reconstruction project. Bowen, Collins and Associates will be beginning design on the project once survey and property information from Public Works is provided to them. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

RICHARDS DITCH WELL REHABILITATION PROJECT 2014:

Widdison Turbine has been on site with a couple of jacks and is in the process of pulling the casing out. The casing, screens, and the perforator were successfully retrieved from the well. The contractor indicated that there is a section of approximately 30 feet in length that will be stuck in the well indefinitely. There are sections of the screen that were damaged and will need to be replaced. The contractor has done a video of the well to inspect the condition of the outer casing. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:

The Riparian to Sunburn Storm Drain Project of the Sandy Canal fill-in has been completed, with the exception of some minor cleanup items. We have received the video inspection from the contractor of the installed storm drain. The contractor has completed all clean up items and we expect to receive a request for final payment soon. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Rod Sorensen at 801-568-7297.

PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:

We met with the contractor, Gerber Construction on site to review the minor repairs on the inside of the tank. The brackets have been replaced and the contractor is planning on making the other repairs in the next few weeks. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
