Public Utilities Projects
1300 EAST WATERLINE PROJECT:
This work was originally part of the 700 East Waterline Replacement Project that is presently under construction. We delayed this work because the bid for the 700 East project came in above our estimate and we had to delay this work until the new budget year. This project consists of approximately 1400 feet of new 8-inch ductile iron pipe on 1300 East from 8600 South to approximately 7930 South. By installing this 8-inch waterline we will be able to utilize the 16-inch water line in 1300 East for better fire protection in the area of 1300 East and 7800 South. We are advertising in the newspaper on Sunday, June 12, and June 19, 2016 and bid opening is scheduled for June 29, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

LOST WOOD STORM WATER REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
The project consists of replacing corrugated metal pipe and installing approximately 3200 feet of reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) ranging in sizes of 15-inch to 30-inch. Cody Ekker Construction was the low bidder and we have issued a Conditional Notice of Award to them. We have received the bonds and insurance from the contractor and are routing the contract for signature. We anticipate that the contract will be signed June 15, 2016. We have a preconstruction meeting scheduled Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
700 EAST WATERLINE PROJECT:
We have awarded bid Schedule A and Schedule B of this project. The contractor has begun work and made an 8-inch hot-tap into the existing 12-inch waterline on 700 East. They also have installed the 8-inch ductile iron pipe that is crossing 700 East from the west side of the road to the east side of the road. They will continue to install the 8-inch waterline going south on the west side of 700 East. If you would like more information on these projects, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
Bowen Collins and Associates (BCA) was selected to be our design engineer. We held a kick-off meeting on June 8, 2016 with BCA. At the kick off meeting we had representatives from Sandy Parks and Recreation and from Community Development to be part of our discussion on the location of the new tank and the city planning approval process. We plan on requesting site plan approval for the new tank and a new well as part of an overall site plan approval. If you would like more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:
All the lights in this project have been installed and are working. On June 6, 2016, we completed our walk-through inspection and produced a punch list for the work on Wasatch Boulevard. Wasatch Boulevard was the last street that the contractor installed lights on. The contractor will have 30 days to complete the punch list items and close out this project. The contractor had many issues completing this contract. We will be documenting these issues in a letter that will be filed with our purchasing department. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:
Condie Construction has installed the storm drain to the intersection of 10000 South and Monroe Street. The roadway trench section has been paved through the intersection and traffic has been routed from the outside of the roadway to the inside in order to install the storm drain north and south along Monroe Street. We received an estimate from the contractor to excavate a channel in the pond located west of I-15 but the price was too high. We will most likely request bids from other contractors to do the work in the pond. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:
9400 South to 9800 South -- We met with Salt Lake County Flood Control and Parks and Recreation Departments to discuss alternatives for the project. The preferred alternative at this point is a shallow large detention basin in Bear Park. We will continue coordinating with the County and doing further design and analysis to evaluate this alternative. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
