DIMPLE DELL ROAD STORM DRAIN PROJECT:
An alignment has been developed for the drainage issues at 10425 South Dimple Dell Road. Our drainage crew will be doing the installation, but we are first working on obtaining agreements, easements, and resolving property boundary issues. In the meantime, we will have the area blue-staked and obtain critical data necessary to finalize a design for the proposed alignment. If you would like further information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
1700 EAST STREETLIGHT PROJECT:
We are planning to install approximately ten arterial streetlights on existing Rocky Mountain Power poles on the east side of 1700 East. Because the streetlights are to be installed on Rocky Mountain Power poles, they will do the installation. Originally, we were planning to install the streetlights on the west side of 1700 East, but there was conflict with the existing 60 foot diameter Metropolitan Water distribution line located in the park strip on the west side of 1700 East. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
500 WEST WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
We contracted with Spade Excavating, Inc. to perform replacement of the existing 500 West water pipeline from 9000 South to approximately 9600 South. The contractor started construction the first week of June. They installed a 12-inch tee on 9000 South on Thursday, June 6, 2013. They have slip-lined the 14-inch HDPE pipe across 9000 South. They plan to make the connection on 9000 South during the night time hours to minimize effects of the water shut down and traffic congestion. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
OPERATIONS BUILDING EMERGENCY ANTENNA PROJECT:
Firms interested in the work for this project have visited the site and are preparing their cost estimates for submittal. We are trying to finalize the footing and foundation design for the antenna pole so that we can include construction of the foundation and erection of the antenna pole into one contract. For further information or questions, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
CEMETERY WELL INVESTIGATION AND MODIFICATIONS:
We met with our consultant about possible options in order to treat and use the water from the well. It was decided to do a feasibility study on the potential of mixing water from Cemetery Well with water from Bicentennial Well and Zone 4. By doing this we will be able to lower the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) concentration to below 500 parts per million (PPM). Currently the water from Cemetery Well has a TDS concentration of approximately 1300 PPM. If you would like more information on this project, please call Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
SANDY CANAL STORM WATER PROJECT:
We have developed over 350 cross sections along the canal using the survey data that was obtained from Anderson Engineering. We held a planning meeting with various departments and discussed the technical aspects of the design, phasing, scheduling, and budget for the work to be done on the project. The first phase was defined as the section of canal between 10600 South and 11400 South. We are preparing construction documents for this phase of the project. If you would like more information regarding this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
WALGREEN'S STREET LIGHT PROJECT:
We are installing four arterial street lights in front of Walgreen's and America First Credit Union on 9400 South. The project was awarded to Hidden Peak Electric. They have finished installing the electrical conduit for the street lights, the street light bases, as well as the 2-inch caliper Red Sunset Maple trees. The street light poles and fixtures have been ordered, which will take approximately six to eight weeks. Once the street light poles and fixtures have arrived the contractor will do the installation and finalize the project. For further information, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
PEPPERWOOD TANK REPLACEMENT:
On May 30, 2013 we held a second on-site meeting with nearby residents. This meeting was much better attended than the first meeting. In the meeting we discussed the schedule of the tank work, and the proposed landscaping and grading plan. Some of the residents had concerns about the access road and retaining walls. We will be buffering these elements as much as possible with landscaping. We received the 60% plan review set and have met with the consultant to review our comments. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
HIGH BENCH BOOSTER REPLACEMENT PROJECT
In response to a complaint from the resident to the north of the booster station we instructed the contractor to install some evergreen trees to shield the electric transformer from view. We are working with the contractor to close out the project. If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074.
WINDY PEAK DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS
We received the scoping and fee estimates from Hansen, Allen, and Luce (HAL) for this project. The Notice-to-Proceed was issued and we held a kick-off meeting for the feasibility portion of the project on Friday, June 14, 2013. The "modified" alignment for the feasibility analysis will be to evaluate taking the storm water north in Windy Peak Ridge Drive to 11000 South, then west to the detention pond located at 11000 South and 1000 East. If it proves feasible to route the storm water through this alignment, HAL will move ahead with preparation of the construction bid documents. Additionally, the plan is to modify the grading and landscaping around the two homes that have previously been flooded. The modification concept will be similar to work that we performed on October Cove involving the three homes in the neighborhood. If you have any questions on this project, please contact Dan Woodbury at 801-568-7285.
