1700 EAST STORM DRAIN REHABILITATION - PHASE I
We are bidding a project with the scope of rehabilitating approximately 675 feet of deteriorated 60-inch diameter corrugated metal storm drain pipe in 1700 East at approximately 12000 South. The rehabilitation method that will be used includes spin-casting a cementitious lining inside the existing pipe. The work will be done without having to excavate and replace the existing pipe. We received and reviewed the bids that were submitted for the project. We issued a Conditional Notice of Award to Guaranteed Waterproofing and Construction on October 1, 2015. We expect to receive the required information from the contractor, finalize the contract documents, and begin the pipe lining work in the next couple of weeks. 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 will soon be using a new mobile app called Utilisync, which will allow us to complete and submit Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) inspections and send inspection reports in the field using a tablet. The app will also be used to complete other required inspections, including outfall, priority area, illicit discharge, post-construction and high-priority facility inspections. We anticipate using this app will streamline the inspection and reporting process. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
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 had a pre-construction meeting on Thursday, October 1, 2015. The contractor is planning to start work on the project next week. The first area to be completed will be Fur Hollow Drive. It is anticipated that this street will be completed in about three weeks. The entire project has a completion deadline of January 20, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:
Cardno, Inc. has completed the potholing in Monroe Street and the information will be provided to the engineering design consultant to complete the design of the storm drain in Monroe Street. The construction of the storm drain will be incorporated with Public Works Monroe Street Phase 4 Road Project.

9400 South to 9800 South -- We met with representatives of the Canyons School District at Edgemont Elementary School to discuss options for a detention or retention pond on the school property. The representatives were excited about the project and asked that we do some conceptual level design work to layout a pond on the property to present it to the Canyons District School Board for approval. We will start looking at conceptual alternatives for the pond at this site. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
