UTAH POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (UPDES):

We gave a presentation to the City Council at the June 16, 2015 council meeting regarding the Utah Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (UPDES) program updates and proposed ordinance changes. We will meet again with the City Council on June 23, 2015, to further discuss the proposed ordinance changes and answer any questions. 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 have identified the power sources for all of our streetlights. We are working with a couple of property owners to get the needed easements. We continue working with the affected residents to insure they understand the importance of the planned installation. Once all the residents have been notified, we will bid out the project. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

We met with the engineering consultants that are working on the design of the storm drain as well as the engineers for the Hale Centre Theatre (HCT) project to coordinate the storm drain design and connections for the HCT. They are both moving forward with the design and will be coordinating closely. 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:

The Sandy Canal Project is the Draper Parkway Detention and Piping Project. We provided a draft version of the inter-local agreement to Draper City for their review. We are coordinating a final design review meeting with Draper and the engineering consultant, Hansen, Allen and Luce. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
