7800 SOUTH WATER SERVICES PROJECT:

We received a bid from KK&L Administration to replace three galvanized services using directional drilling on 7800 South at 560 East, 570 East, and 574 East. These services are each approximately twelve feet deep. The contractor has already completed all work on this project and has demobilized the site. Once we receive the final pay request along with all necessary paperwork, we will close out this project. 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.

SANDY PARKWAY WATERLINE PROJECT:

The contractor has finished installing the water main on Sandy Parkway and most of 700 West. They are planning to connect to the existing PVC pipe on 700 West sometime next week. The contractor has also been doing asphalt restoration due to nice weather. Once the connection has been made, they will focus on the water services. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

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 jacks were able to pull the pipe up about 7" using 210,000 pounds of force. We are hoping that the casing could come loose without damaging the well. If this approach is unsuccessful, the contractor will gravel pack the well again and see if they can find the hole. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:

The city drainage crew is installing cleanout boxes and the 60-inch diameter concrete pipe in the canal. All of the curb and gutter and the fire station parking lot area has been replaced. The concrete roadway in 700 East should be completed next week. Lyndon Jones has completed all storm drain pipe, manholes and most of the surface improvements in Riparian Drive and Sunburn Lane. They will begin next week to install the storm drain in the canal corridor from Sunburn Lane to the south. We met with Hansen, Allen & Luce Inc. (HAL) to review possible alternatives. We performed some field reconnaissance and have provided drainage related information to HAL for their analysis. We have received and reviewed all necessary easement information from HAL for the Draper Detention and Piping Project. We will continue working with property owners to obtain easements for the project. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Rod Sorensen at 801-568-7297.

PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:

The final walk through has been rescheduled for this week. The contractor has been doing some final clean-up and is removing the remaining equipment and unused materials. The only major outstanding item is the gate for the access drive. It has been ordered but is still a couple of weeks out. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

WINDY PEAK STORM WATER PROJECT:

We had another final walk through and identified a few minor items that need to be addressed. Once they are taken care of and all required project closeout documents are received, final payment will be made and the project will be closed out. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
