Public Utilities Projects
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 mobilized the site and has started construction. The contractor will have 14 days to complete the work. 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 performing asphalt restoration from 9000 South to approximately 8650 South. The contractor is currently installing a new water main on Parkland Drive. Once Parkland Drive is completed, they will continue installing the water main in Sandy Parkway. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:
Bowen Collins & Associates has provided us with a proposal to develop a design to improve the storm drain system in the Monroe Street/10000 South area. These improvements are in accordance with the recommendations in a memo concerning the impacts of the Central Business District Development on the storm water system. We held a meeting with our consultant to discuss the progress of the design. We still need to do some verifications and camera work on existing pipe. We are hoping to reduce the overall pipe size of the storm drain line. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
RICHARDS DITCH WELL REHABILITATION PROJECT 2014:
We had a meeting with Kyle Widdison, owner/manager of Widdison Turbine to go over the project. Because of the complication and the uniqueness of this project, we have extended the contract time from June 30, 2014 to November 14, 2014. The contractor has removed all of the equipment from the site and will be bringing in a 120 ton crane in an attempt to pull the casing. If the casing can successfully be pulled, they will start the new gravel pack. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:
We had a meeting with UDOT this past week regarding the alternative to convey flows from Savannah Drive to a UDOT storm drain in 700 East. It appears that we will be able to reach an agreement with UDOT to do this. We are now preparing a letter for UDOT outlining the agreement. We are in the process of reviewing submittals from the contractor for the Riparian to Sunburn Lane Project. Lyndon Jones will be potholing and beginning construction next week. We held a meeting with Salt Lake County and White City's engineer representative to coordinate a joint storm drain project which is proposed to convey flows from the discharge points along Sandy Canal between 9400 South and 9800 South. Hansen, Allen & Luce, Inc. (HAL) is updating the scope and budget to reflect items addressed in the meeting. HAL is preparing easement descriptions for the Draper Parkway Detention Basin and Piping project. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Rod Sorensen at 801-568-7297.
PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:
This past week the landscaping work was completed. The electrician has some work to finish but should be complete this week. After the electrician is complete, we will schedule a final walk through to compile a final punch list for the project. In the coming weeks we will be finalizing the paperwork and closing out the project. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
WINDY PEAK STORM WATER PROJECT:
A final walk through inspection was completed on September 19, 2014. The contractor has been working on the final punch list items and indicated they expect to have all items completed by October 7, 2014. A final change order has been prepared and submitted to the contractor for approval which includes adjustment for final quantities. Once all of the punch list items have been verified as complete and the final change order approved, the project will be closed out. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
