Public Utilities Projects
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. They began the evaluation and have been re-defining the drainage sub-basins to more accurately represent the actual basins throughout the city. We have also modified the input criteria pertaining to rainfall intensity. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
9000 SOUTH AND SANDY PARKWAY WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
On November 6, 2013 we conducted a final walk through on the project. Everything has been completed. We met with the contractor to review some changes made in the field necessary due to field conditions being different than the design drawings. This waterline project was finished in time for the 9000 South pavement area that had been trenched to be ready for the overlay project that was completed by Public Works. There were some additions to the project due to UDOT requirements and differences in pipe sizes that we were replacing. We will have this project closed this week. If you would like more information regarding either one of these projects, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
DIMPLE DELL ROAD STORM DRAIN PROJECT:
An alignment has been developed for the drainage issues at 10425 South Dimple Dell Road. Our drainage crew will be doing the installation, but we are first working on obtaining agreements, easements, and resolving property boundary issues. In the meantime, we will have the area blue-staked and obtain critical data necessary to finalize a design for the proposed alignment. If you would like further information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
500 WEST WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
This project is substantially complete as of November 4, 2013. The contractor has finished installing the last water service. The road has been asphalted. We did a final walk through inspection on November 12, 2013 with the contractor and are in the process of producing a punch list. Once the punch list items have been produced, the contractor will then have 30 days to finish the items on the list. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION TOWER PROJECT:
The contractor was ready to install the footings and foundation of the tower, but there was a mix-up with the used pole that we were trying to acquire. The supplier is manufacturing a new pole for us. In the meantime we are assembling the base templates and bolts, so that when the contractor returns with the drilling auger everything will be prepared for them to place the concrete and build the foundation. The new pole should be ready to ship in about 8 weeks. For further information or questions, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
CEMETERY WELL REHABILITATION:
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:
The contractor finished filling in the canal north of 11000 South up to the bend in the canal that heads north of the Silver Sage Retirement Center. This is the limit where we had asked them to stop. We are now gathering information about storm water pipes, inverts, and capacity out in 700 East. We are looking at options and various possibilities for routing the storm water from adjacent subdivisions. We are trying to minimize impacts as well as work up the most economical solutions for routing of this water. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:
The roof and vertical sides of the old tank have been demolished. The reinforcing steel is being separated from the old concrete at the site. The old concrete is to be crushed on site and reused as base material under the new tank. Excavation and shoring is continuing and the first concrete pour is planned for later this month. This pour is for the floor of the valve vault on the north side of the tank. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
WINDY PEAK STORM WATER PROJECT:
We met on October 16, 2013 and transferred the data and pot-holing information to our consultant. They have been working on the final design drawings and the bid package. They have prepared prequalification bid documents for contractors interested in this project. We will place the advertisement to prequalify contractors over the next three weeks, with proposals due on Wednesday, December 18, 2013. The tentative schedule for the rest of the project is as follows: Notice of qualified contractors on January 15, 2014; bids through the end of February with a bid opening for the construction contract on March 18, 2014. The contract will be awarded around the first of April and construction to be completed around the end of July. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
