LOST WOOD STORM WATER REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

We are replacing the Corrugated Metal Pipe (CMP) in Lostwood Drive. The CMP pipe has been corroded by the salt applied on the road. We are designing this project in house and with the help of the Public Works department. We are planning to replace the entire stretch of asphalt from Wasatch to Dimple Dell. We have finalized the bid package for this work. The project consists of installing approximately 3200 feet of reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) ranging in sizes of 15-inch to 30-inch. We advertised the project on Sunday, May 8th and again on May 15, 2016. Bid opening is scheduled for May 24, 2016. Construction will begin the first week of June. Construction will last 120 days. If you have any questions, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

700 EAST AND 1300 EAST WATERLINE PROJECT:

We received two bids from pre-qualified contractors. The lowest bid came in above our budget for both project areas. We have decided to award Cliff Johnson Excavating Schedule A and Schedule B (700 East Waterline Project) and rebid Schedule D (1300 East Waterline Project) in June 2016. The contract has been signed and the Notice to Proceed issued. The contractor has mobilized the site (7800 South and 700 East) and made an 8-inch hot-tap into the existing 12-inch waterline on 700 East. They also have installed the 8-inch ductile iron pipe that is crossing 700 East from the west side of the road to the east side of the road. They have installed approximately 500 feet of 8-inch water line. They are planning to do a bacterial test and pressure test next week. If you would like more information on these projects please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

WELL AND PUMP STATION MAINTENANCE SERVICES (2016 WILDFLOWER WELL REHABILITATION):

The new pump has been installed and the well is running. Nickerson has finished with the work and we are awaiting the final invoice. We will be processing a change order to pay for the actual work that was completed on the rehab project. If any questions on this, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

We received proposals from Bowen Collins and Associates, Hansen Allen & Luce, Jones & DeMille, and Stantec for Engineering Design and Construction Management Services for the tank replacement project. Our selection committee met on May 13th and selected Bowen Collins and Associates to complete the design work for the tank replacement. We have issued a Conditional Notice of Award and we are awaiting insurance certificates to complete the contract. If you would like more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:

The contractor has been restoring, installing, and replacing sidewalk, asphalt, and landscaping on 700 West and 300 West. We have produced a punch list of items that need to be completed for Highland Drive, Newcastle Drive, and Quail Hollow Drive. The next streets we will do a walk-through inspection and produce punch list items will be Wasatch Blvd. and Galena Drive. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

Condie Construction is continuing to install the storm drain to the east toward the intersection of Monroe Street and 10000 South and should be to the intersection soon. Concrete panels have been replaced just east of the freeway overpass. UDOT has modified the construction permit to include the maintenance work to excavate a channel in the detention pond west of I-15 to allow the pond to drain better and not back up into the new storm drain. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

SANDY CANAL ENCLOSURE PROJECT:

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.
