The city plans to construct a new tank that is structurally sound and provides more water efficiently to the city. Additionally, a well house will be located adjacent to the tank. This will replace the existing well house located northwest of the new tank. 

June 6, 2018 update: The contractor has poured seven sections of the wall and are forming the eighth wall section. They also have poured eight columns. They have replaced an existing fire hydrant and have installed the water line past the asphalt pavement.

LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT (LID) DESIGN FOR THE PUBLIC WORKS OPERATIONS FACILITY:

Sandy Public Works and Public Utilities are incorporating a public demonstration of Low Impact Design for the new Public Works facility at 8775 S 700 W. The City desires to the new facility be a model for future development of how LID can be implemented that is attractive, cost effective, and improves water quality. 

 Sandy City was awarded $311,600 from the Utah Division of Water Quality for the implementation of Low Impact Development (LID) at the new Public Works operations facility. The Public Works facility is located near the Jordan River and due to the nature of the facility and operations performed on the site, there is significant potential for pollutants to be discharged directly to the River. The LID design will assist in collecting garbage, debris and other materials, retaining much of the runoff on site, and treating released water before it is discharged to the River. LID elements that are incorporated into the Public Works facility include bioswales, bioretention areas, rain gardens, pervious concrete, underground detention storage, routing roof drains and hard surface areas to landscaped areas, and use of structural treatment devices.

Construction has started on Phase 1 of the Public Works Facility project. We will be working closely with Michael Baker International, Public Works and the contractor as they begin work on the storm drain system and Low Impact Development facilities.

DRY CREEK CONCEPT PLAN:

We are working with Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) to develop a conceptual plan for the Dry Creek corridor from Jordan River to Dimple Dell. The focus area of the plan is the Cairns downtown area (Monroe Street to 300 East). We are working with City administration and City departments as well as Salt Lake County to develop the plan. The concept plan will include all aspects including transportation, recreation, future development, flood control, and water quality. We are planning phases of work to improve the Dry Creek corridor and want to make sure the work is coordinated and completed according to the plan and in an efficient manner.

The Dry Creek Concept Report was completed and we have provided a PDF of the report to Sandy City departments and Salt Lake County Flood Control and Parks and Recreation. We will meet with South Town Mall representatives to review the final report and discuss it with them. The Concept Plan will be used as we proceed with improvements to Dry Creek over the next several years. 

If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.  

DRY CREEK IMPROVEMENTS PHASE 2:

We received the bids and issued a Conditional Notice of Award to Beck Construction.  Upon receipt of the insurance and bond information, the construction agreement was executed and a Notice to Proceed was issued. A pre-construction meeting was held on Monday, May 7th, 2018 and the contractor has mobilized and has started work on the site. A ground breaking for the Dry Creek Improvements was held on Friday, April 21, 2018. As of June, riprap has been installed in the bottom of the channel and is almost complete.

SANDY CANAL TRAIL - 10600 SOUTH TO DIMPLE DELL:

We have had a few meetings with Salt Lake County (SLCo) Flood Control, SLCo Parks and Recreation and White City representatives to discuss alternatives for the trail and storm drains that currently discharge to the canal. We are partnering with White City Metro Township (Township) to design the section of trail through White City from 10600 South to Carnation Drive. It is planned that SLCo, the Township and Sandy City will each contribute the construction costs of the trail. 

We reviewed proposals for the engineering design services and ranked the proposals. Sunrise Engineering received the highest score and has been awarded the project. A Notice to Proceed has been issued and a kick-off meeting was held on Monday. The Inter-Local Agreement to cost share engineering fees with White City (50/50) was recommended by City Council and signed by the Mayor. Design for the project will be completed by January 2019 and will go out to bid soon after that date. We expect that construction will begin around February or March of 2019.

RIVER OAKS DRIVE WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

Within the River Oaks Villas subdivision, we have had several water breaks due to the highly corrosive soils in the area.  Because the waterlines are so deep, waterline breaks tend to be very destructive to the roadway.  We are doing an in-house design of this project to replace approximately 1,400 feet of waterline within the subdivision. 

Since we received only one bid for the construction of this project and the bid was substantially over our budget, we will be rebidding the River Oaks portion in about one month. We re-advertised this project on April 30th and May 10th, we held a non-mandatory meeting to go over any questions the bidding contractors may have at that time. Bid opening for the project was held on May 16, 2018.  We are now waiting receipt of project bonding.

For more information regarding this project, please contact Mason Clark at 801-568-7297 or Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

10600 SOUTH STATE STREET WATERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT:

We had several waterline breaks on the 8-inch line in State Street and the 10-inch line in 10600 South.  The scope of this project includes abandoning approximately 1,000 feet of the 8-inch water line south of 10600 South and connecting the fire hydrants and services to the 12-inch line on the east side of State Street.  We will also be replacing approximately 600 feet of the 10-inch waterline from State Street, eastward and completing a waterline loop located in the Einstein Bagels parking lot.

March 19, 2018 update: On February 15, 2018 at our bid opening we received only one bid for the construction of this project. The bid was substantially over our budget. We rebid the water line work that needs to be completed before UDOT begins work on State Street and 700 East on March 7th. This time we received three bids. We are finalizing the contract with the low bidder this week. Construction will begin in about a week.

For more information regarding this project, please contact Mason Clark at 801-568-7297 or Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.

 700 EAST WATERLINE ABANDONMENT PROJECT:

UDOT is planning a mill and overlay project for 700 East from 9400 South to Carnation Drive for April 2018.  A 6-inch line needs to be abandoned from 9400 South to 9950 South.  Because UDOT places a moratorium on their roadways after a mill and overlay, we added the abandonment of this waterline to the 10600 South and State Street Project scope to complete before the UDOT mill and overlay.  Jones and DeMille has included this project in their design and bid package for 10600 South and State Street Project.

March 19, 2018 update: On February 15, 2018 at our bid opening we received only one bid for the construction of this project. The bid was substantially over our budget. We rebid the water line work that needs to be completed before UDOT begins work on State Street and 700 East on March 7th.  This time we received three bids. We are finalizing the contract with the low bidder this week. Construction will begin in about a week.
