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. 

November 8, 2018 update: DN Tanks, Inc. has finished the shotcrete on the exterior of the tank and removed their equipment from the site. After receiving input from the residents and city staff, three colors were selected to be applied as samples to the outside of the tank, but due to temperature restrictions, we will wait until spring to apply the sample colors, decide on a color and paint the tank. The contractor continues to install the 24-inch waterline this past couple of weeks. The inside stairway has been poured with concrete. They are forming the outside stairway and are planning to pour concrete in the next few weeks.

 More details for the Flat Iron Tank and Well Project can be found here

Below is an amazing video of the Flat Iron Tank currently under construction prepared by Robin Saville, Image/Media Specialist for Sandy City. Enjoy!! 


We received three bids from contractors to drill the Flat Iron Well. We are in the process of awarding the contract to Hydro Resources, Incorporated, who was the low bidder. The contract is being routed for signature. It is anticipated that they will begin work the first week of December.

Sandy City desires to have the new Public Works Operations Facility be a model for future development of how LID can be implemented. LID elements that will be incorporated into the design include bio-swales, bio-retention, rain gardens, pervious concrete, underground detention storage, routing roof drains and hard surface areas to landscape areas, and use of structural treatment devices.  

We and the  Public Works Department have been working with JRCA Architects and Ensign Engineering to design a new facility at 8775 South 700 West.  Phase 1 of the project is under construction.

November 8, 2018 update: We have continued communication and coordination with Bowen, Collins & Associates (BCA) and Salt Lake County Flood Control regarding objectives and schedule for further improvements to Dry Creek. We will first complete the flood control improvements at 10200 South and State Street to reduce flooding potential and contain the 100-year base flood in the channel. A figure below shows a concept of the improvement project at 10200 South. Once the project is completed, we will request from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) to modify the flood plain mapping through the Cairns downtown area.

 BCA will be finalizing the preliminary design report later this month and we will contract with another engineering firm in our Engineering Consulting Pool to begin final design of the 10200 South project. We anticipate completing the final design and obtaining the required easements for construction by September 2019. The construction work will be completed during the winter of 2019-2020.

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


November 8, 2018 update: We had a walk-through on the Dry Creek Improvements Phase 2 project last Thursday. Once all remaining items are complete and the way-finding signage is installed, we will close out the project.

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


Sorensen Construction, Inc. has started installing 2-inch conduit for the new streetlights. They have completed conduit installation on 10600 South (from 750 East to 780 East) and 85 East (from 10964 South to Clear Creek Road). They are finishing up with the installation of the 2-inch conduit on Viscounti Road and Tilford Drive.

If you would like more information, please contact Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.


August 10, 2018 update: Sunrise Engineering has provided us preliminary design plans. We have reviewed the drawings, along with representatives from Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation, Greater Salt Lake Metro Service District, White City, and Sandy City Parks and Recreation. We met on Monday, August 13, 2018 to review the design and provide input on the design. Sunrise Engineering will be incorporating comments and continuing work towards completing the design. 

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


November 8, 2018 update: The contractor has substantially completed the 7800 South and 10600 South portions of the project. They are working on punch list items for both areas. Jordan Oaks Drive (River Oaks) has been paved and the contractor is working on installing the water main on Oak Green Way (River Oaks). The contractor has run into a few problems that have delayed the project. They are still trying to complete the project by the November 20, 2018 deadline. If weather holds beyond that point, we are willing to work with them to finish the project this year.

There are currently three waterlines that cross I-15 and supply water to the portion of the City west of I-15. The waterline in 9000 South is badly corroded and has had several costly breaks in the last few years. Replacing 9000 South water line with a new crossing north of 9000 South was added to our capital projects list in 2015. The proposed new supply line across I-15 is planned to be installed at approximately 8550 South. In addition to the new supply line, the existing waterline in Harrison Street needs to be replaced and up sized. As part of the proposed project, the existing 6-inch diameter waterline in Harrison Street will be replaced with an 8-inch diameter waterline from approximately 8800 South to Cottage Avenue and with a 12-inch diameter waterline from Cottage Lane to approximately 8550 South. (Phase 1 - Waterline Improvements). 

November 8, 2018 Update: We have been communicating with Jones and DeMille Engineering over the last few weeks regarding details for the design. We will be meeting on Friday, November 16, 2018 to review the 90% design drawings and bid package as well as do a plan-in-hand site walk. We still plan to bid the project around January 2019 for a construction start around February or March of 2019.

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


The waterline in 1700 East at 12000 South has had several breaks recently due to corrosive soil and/or stray current. Lining this pipe with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe will correct the problem. We have hired Bowen and Collins Associate to help us with the design. We are meeting with them in the next couple of weeks to move forward the completion of the plans.
