Public Utilities Projects



This next month we will begin to draft a Request for Proposals document to be used to select a consultant for this project. This fall we plan to select a firm to begin the design for a concrete tank that will replace the two steel tanks at Flat Iron Park. We anticipate the new tank to be built above ground in the same area as the existing tanks. It is planned that the new tank will be at least 5 million gallons and will have the same height as the existing tanks. If you would like more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.


We have been working with Community Development Department to update new development checklists that include the new UPDES requirements. We are finalizing a City-wide Spill Prevention and Response Plan and associated Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) dealing with spills. We have been working with Public Works, Parks & Recreation, and Risk Management on preparing the plan and SOPs. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.


We met with Loughlin Water Associates, LLC., the engineering consultant, to review the consultant's preliminary assessment of the geophysical data of nearby wells. We will prequalify contractors for the drilling of the exploratory well in the next few months and plan to begin drilling around October of this year. Loughlin Water has submitted contractor prequalification requirements for us to review and are currently working on the bidding documents. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.


The bid opening for the installation of the lights is scheduled for August 25, 2015. The City has purchased the streetlight fixtures, photo cells, and poles directly from the manufacturers. The fixtures and photo cells are a sole source item. We have received the cost of the fixtures and photo cells for the 125 streetlights. We have also received a bid to supply 125 streetlight poles. We anticipate that the poles will arrive by October 20, 2015. By bidding out the materials ahead of the installation contract the successful installation contractor will be able to start work sooner without the wait time for the materials delivery. We also believe by doing this the City saved between $50,000 and $75,000. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 


We have received and reviewed bids submitted from contractors for the potholing work. Cardno, Inc., was issued a Conditional Notice of Award for the project. The information that will be obtained with the potholing work will be provided to the engineering consultant to complete the design storm drain. The construction of the storm drain will be incorporated with Public Works Monroe Street Phase 4 Road Project. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.


Draper Parkway Detention and Piping -- The interlocal agreement for the project was approved by the Sandy City Council on August 18, 2015 and copies of the signed agreement have been delivered to Draper City for their signatures. Once the agreement is fully executed, the project will be bid by Draper City.

9400 South to 9800 South -- We met with representatives of the Canyons School District at Edgemont Elementary School to discuss options for a detention or retention pond on the school property. The representatives were excited about the project and asked that we do some conceptual level design work to layout a pond on the property to present it to the Canyons District School Board for approval. We will start looking at conceptual alternatives for the pond at this site. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
