FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
FLAT IRON TANK REPLACEMENT PROJECT:
The purpose of this project is to replace two existing (2 million gallon) tanks with one new 5 million gallon tank. The existing tanks are nearly 50 years old, do not meet current seismic structural design criteria, and are in need of repair. 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.
The contractor has mobilized and installed the BMP's (Best Management Practices) for storm water protection. They have also fenced off the perimeter and have installed temporary asphalt walking path for park users. The old east tank location will be used for a staging area for the construction of the new tank. For more information, please contact Richard Benham at 801-568-6074 or Lennie Chanthaphuang at 801-568-7293.
STORM DRAIN MASTER PLAN UPDATE:
We have provided requested information to Hansen, Allen & Luce, Inc., to begin the master plan work. We are continuing to update the storm drain GIS data and obtain information on the detention basin outlet structures for the master plan work. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
DRY CREEK MASTER PLAN STUDY:
We met with Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) to finalize details of the scope and budget for the project. We have meet with individuals from various departments in the City and in Salt Lake County to identify needs and discuss a plan for Dry Creek through the Cairns downtown mall area. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
DRY CREEK CONCEPT PLAN:
The open house for the Dry Creek Improvements project was originally going to be held on October 11th, 2017, but was moved to November 15, 2017. Bowen, Collins and Associates (BCA) is working on conceptual renderings of the alternatives for the State Street crossing of Dry Creek at 10200 South and overall proposed improvements to Dry Creek through the Cairns downtown area. These renderings will be used for the open house. We have a meeting scheduled for October 30, 2017 with BCA to review the renderings. We will be coordinating the design of Dry Creek Phase 2 Improvements (Monroe Street to Centennial Parkway -- Southbound) with an architectural firm that is assisting the City with alternatives for development on the City-owned property located north of Dry Creek and east of Monroe Street. We have received a scope and budget from BCA to complete the design and construction of Phase 2 and 4. If you would like more information on this project, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
SANDY CANAL STORM DRAIN - 9400 SOUTH TO 9800 SOUTH:
We received and reviewed a draft Interlocal Agreement prepared by Salt Lake County that details the construction, cost sharing, and maintenance for the project. We are scheduling a meeting with the County to discuss the details of the agreement. Once we have worked out details for the agreement, we will start design of the storm drain project along the canal corridor. If you would like more information, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
SANDY CANAL STORM DRAIN AT BEAR PARK:
A kick-off meeting was held with Caldwell Richards Sorensen (CRS) in September. Based on recent communication with the CRS project manager, initial surveying and pre-design evaluation has been completed, including evaluating the storm drain model and potential concept alternatives for the project. We will be meeting with CRS later this month to discuss the conceptual alternatives. If you would like more information, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.
