2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:

The Public Utilities department has received three proposals from engineering firms to assist us with the design and construction management of the 2015 Streetlight Project. We have formed a committee to evaluate the proposals. 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:

This project is substantially completed. We did a walk through inspection with the contractor and produced a punch list of items for the contractor to address. The contractor will have 30 days to complete the punch list items. Once the punch list items have been completed, we will close out the project. 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.
