1300 EAST WATERLINE PROJECT:

We held a bid opening on June 29, 2016 and received bids from two contractors. Newman Construction was awarded the contract and given a Notice to Proceed on July 21, 2016. We anticipate construction will start on Monday, August 15, 2016. They have until October 31, 2016 to complete this project. We feel the bid came in higher than the estimate because of the extra traffic control that is needed at the 8600 South and 1300 East intersection and the smaller size of the project. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

UTAH POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM (UPDES):

Ray Herrera was nominated and selected to receive the 2015 American Public Works Association (APWA) Utah Chapter Storm Water Inspector of the Year Award. Congratulations, Ray!

LOST WOOD STORM WATER REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

The contractor Cody Ekker Construction has installed approximately 1000 feet of 30-inch and 24-inch Reinforced Concrete Pipe (RCP). They also have been installing concrete collars, curb and gutter, side walk, and ADA ramps. This past week a portion of the road was paved. They also are continuing to install 24-inch RCP. This project is approximately 35% complete. If you have any questions, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.

700 EAST WATERLINE PROJECT:

Asphalt work from 7800 South to 8000 South has been completed. The contractor is now preparing the section of pipe from 8000 South to 8270 South for bacteriological and pressure tests. They are scheduled to have that section of road asphalted in the next couple of weeks. They have approximately 1000 feet of pipe to install to complete the project. If you would like more information on these projects, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

Bowen Collins and Associates (BCA) was selected to be our design engineer. Soils drilling work for the project has been completed by the geotechnical engineer. We had a meeting with BCA on Friday, August 5, 2016 to go over the site plan and pin point where the new tank and well house will be located. We also talked about the possibility of lowering the tank about 6 feet. If you would like more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.

2015 STREETLIGHT INSTALLATION PROJECT:

All the lights in this project have been installed and are working. On June 6, 2016, we completed our walk-through inspection and produced a punch list for the work on Wasatch Boulevard. Wasatch Boulevard was the last street that the contractor installed lights on. The contractor will have 30 days to complete the punch list items and close out this project. The contractor had many issues completing this contract. We will be documenting these issues in a letter that will be filed with our purchasing department. If you have any questions, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293. 

MONROE STREET/10000 SOUTH STORM DRAIN IMPROVEMENTS:

Condie Construction has completed the storm drain along 10000 South and has installed the storm drain in Monroe Street along the west side of the road to Civic Center Drive. The contractor has focused on roadway improvement work the last couple of weeks. Work on the storm drain has picked up again. It is expected that the storm drain will be completed across Monroe Street to connect to the existing storm drain on the east side of the road this week or next. Some adjustments were made for the stub-outs for the Hale Center Theatre storm drain due to some utility conflicts. 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.
