We received bids from contractors Widdison Turbine Services and Nickerson Company to provide on-call well and pump maintenance work. This week we will provide Nickerson a Conditional Notice of Award. If any questions on this, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

1700 EAST STORM DRAIN REHABILITATION - PHASE I

Guaranteed Waterproofing and Construction (GWPC) continues to install the centrifugally cast concrete liner in the 1700 East storm drain and will most likely will be completed next week (December 11th). The installation is taking longer than the contractor had originally thought. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

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.

UTAH POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (UPDES):

We have started using the Utilisync mobile app to complete Storm Water Pollution Prevention inspections and to send the inspection reports in the field. We are also mapping existing private storm water post-construction storm drain systems that have been installed since January 1, 2003. As part of the schedule we worked out with the State, this needs to be completed by May 1, 2016; however, we expect to complete it sooner. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:

The contractor continues to install conduit and streetlights on Cobble Canyon Lane. They also have been installing conduit and streetlights on Viscounti Drive, Viscounti Circle, and Telford Way. They are pot holing on 700 West and plan to install conduit and streetlights in the next few weeks.  If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

We reviewed the 50% design drawings completed by Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) and met with them to discuss our comments. BCA is now making adjustments to the drawings and they plan to have a 90% design package ready in a couple of weeks. We met with Public Works last week to coordinate efforts related to the drawing package since the drawings for the storm drain will be incorporated with the Monroe Street Phase 4 Road Project. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:

Draper Parkway Detention and Piping -- Draper City awarded the project to Staker Parson Companies who was the low bidder. Construction of the project will be managed by Draper City and we are coordinating closely with Draper during construction. We attended the pre-construction meeting for the project on November 12, 2015. The contractor will most likely start construction this week (November 30, 2015). 

9400 South to 9800 South -- We met with Salt Lake County Flood Control and Parks and Recreation Departments to discuss alternatives for the project. The preferred alternative at this point is a shallow large detention basin in Bear Park. We will continue coordinating with the County and doing further design and analysis to evaluate this alternative. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
