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. 

July 13, 2018 update: The contractor is forming the last wall section and is scheduled to pour that section next week. The contractor DN Tanks, Inc., performed vertical tensioning on the north walls. They have two columns left to construct along with installing the 24-inch water pipe from the tank. The crews have placed asphalt at the roundabout and the fire hydrant concrete pad and sidewalk north of the roundabout have been installed.

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.

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.

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.

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.
