Public Utilities Projects
UTAH POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (UPDES):
We have been updating several Standard Operating Procedures for the Storm Water Management Program as well as mapping storm drain facilities and building floor drains on City-owned properties. As we move through the process of presenting proposed changes to the Storm Water Ordinance to the City Council in June, we will first present the information to the Public Utilities Advisory Board on May 21, 2015. Upon their approval, our presentation will also appear on the Planning Commission agenda. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
FLAT IRON WELLS ABANDONMENT PROJECT:
Nickerson Company, Inc., was awarded the contract. The contractor's plan to mobilize the site the week of May 11th was delayed somewhat due to the rain as they were not able to bring their truck onsite. Once the equipment is in place, they will pull the pump and casing from the well. They have until May 31, 2015 to finish the project. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
LONE PEAK EXPLORATORY WELL PROJECT:
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.
2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:
We have added a few city streets to the scope of the project and have approved a change order for Wright Engineering. We also have decided to go with the LED full cut-off fixture, which reduces the spacing of the streetlights to 150 feet. We anticipate receiving a re-submittal from the consultant in the next week or two. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:
We have been evaluating different options for the storm drain routing. Bowen Collins and Associates has continued to assist the City in analyzing various alternatives and developing associated cost estimates. Research has shown that the best alternative for this project will be to install the storm drain south along Monroe Street and then westward along 10000 South to the detention basin just west of I-15. We plan to coordinate the installation of the storm drain with the Public Works Monroe Street Phase 4 Project currently being designed by Public Works. We met last week (5/15) with Public Works and Bowen and Collins to communicate and coordinate efforts. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
RICHARDS DITCH WELL REHABILITATION PROJECT 2014:
The contractor has finished installing the pump and motor and has started up the well. We have been pumping the well to waste. At this time the well is not producing water clean enough to put into the system. We will continue to pump the well to waste until the quality of the water is up to standard before it can be put into the system. If you would like more detailed information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:
We are currently working with our attorney and Draper City to prepare an inter-local agreement which will define cost responsibilities and post-construction maintenance of the storm drain facilities. While coordinating with Centurylink for the relocation of an existing utility, it was identified that a main fiber optic 9-way conduit encased in concrete runs under the Draper City detention pond (which is to be enlarged with the project). The design of the pond will be adjusted slightly to accommodate the fiber optic. The modification will include leaving a portion of the bottom higher in order to maintain cover over the conduit. This adjustment has been discussed with and approved by Centurylink. We will be reviewing a set of 90% design drawings and bidding documents that we have received from Hansen, Allen and Luce. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
