The city has constructed a new 5 million gallon tank that is structurally sound and provides more water efficiently to the city. This phase of the Public Utilities work in the park is nearing completion. 

July 31, 2019 update:  The mill and asphalt is scheduled for July 29th, and July 31, 2019. The contractor has finhed grading the site. Trees and bushes have been planted. They continue to install the irrigation system.

The purpose of this project is to construct a new drinking water well on the southeast side of the new 5 million gallon tank in Flat Iron Mesa Park.  The new well will replace an old well located north of the park that had to be abandoned.  After completion of the well drilling, a well house will be constructed around the well.

June 7, 2019 update:  The contractor is reaming the well diameter to 28 inches.   There are two 100-foot zones that has been gravel packed. The contractor has finished installing the casing and screens.  We expect that the well will produce up to 4,000 GPM.  The contractor has finished the 24-hour phase of operations. They have removed the rotary rig from the site. The contractor continues to develop the well. We requested the contractor to do an additional 40 hour of development to reduce sand particles. Once the development is complete, they will test pump the well.

Sandy City completed a Concept Plan for Dry Creek in 2018. The purpose of the Dry Creek Improvements project is to complete critical infrastructure improvements along the Dry Creek corridor to 1) eliminate flooding potential in the Sandy Cairns downtown area, 2) restore the channel and convert it from an overgrown hazard to a central feature of the Sandy Cairns downtown area with recreational features including open space, trails, and the Art Walk, and 3) provide demonstrations for public education along the corridor of Low Impact Development (LID), water conservation, and water quality Best Management Practices (BMPs).

Phase 1 (between Monroe Street and I-15) of the Dry Creek Improvements Project was completed in 2016. Phase 2 (between Monroe Street and Centennial Parkway) consists of 400 linear feet of channel restoration that includes grading, riprap, landscape and irrigation, a 60 linear foot prefabricated pedestrian bridge, concrete trail, lighting, small shade structures, picnic tables, benches, trash cans and pedestrian ADA ramps.

July 31, 2019 update:  The grass has been installed on the project.  We will be working with the engineer and contractor to cleanup and finalize the project. We will soon have a final walkthrough.

Sandy City storm water operations personnel had the project site blue-staked and are now performing underground utility investigation work to identify the location and depth of utilities that may be in conflict with the proposed flood control facilities.  We met with Hansen, Allen & Luce (HAL) to review the design and discuss schedule. HAL is working on the design drawings and we will have a design review meeting the middle of August with Sandy City and Salt Lake County representatives.

The purpose of this project is to install 19 residential streetlights throughout the City.  These new lights were planned in accordance with our Streetlight Master Plan.

June 7, 2019 update:  the contractor has finished installing all the streetlights. All streetlights are lit and are functioning. The contractor has come back to restore the asphalt, concrete, and landscape. Once they complete the work, we will walk the site and produce punch list items.

We have been working over the last several years to complete necessary storm drain projects and convert the Sandy Canal corridor into a trail system. The trail has been completed from the south end of the Sandy City, up to 10600 South. Salt Lake County has completed design for and will bid out this summer, a project that includes a bridge across Dimple Dell and trail improvements from Carnation Drive to Bear Park. We are collaborating with White City Metro Township on a project to complete trail and drainage improvements along the Sandy Canal corridor from 10600 South to Dimple Dell. This project will connect the completed trail at 10600 South to the County project at Carnation Drive.

July 31, 2019 update:  The Conditional Notice of Award has been issued to Black Forest Paving for construction of the project. We are waiting to receive bonding and insurance information from the contractor. Once we have this information, we will circulate the contract for approval. The contractor is most likely to begin construction the middle of August.

This project includes waterlines in the River Oaks Subdivision, 10600 South at State Street and a short section of 7800 South (450 East to 550 East).  Because of the busy construction climate, we will allow the contractor to complete these sections anytime during the construction season providing that once the contractor begins a section they must complete that section in a timely manner. We are hopeful that this approach will also result in lower bids.

June 14, 2019 update: The contractor has substantially completed all three areas of the project: 7800 South, 10600 South and River Oaks. We will be doing a final walk-through of all three project areas with the contractor. The contractor has 30 days to complete the punch list items.

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


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). 

The new storm drain improvements west of Monroe Street will convey the storm drain runoff flows and irrigation tailwater north along Cottage Avenue and Harrison Street to the 60-inch diameter storm drain outfall in 8600 S.  The completion of this project will eliminate the storm drains on private property, reduce maintenance, and increase storm drain capacity in the area.

July 31, 2019 update:  The water main in Harrison Street has been installed and pressure tested. The contractor is now working to connect to the existing waterlines and services. The storm drain in Cottage Avenue is almost complete and the contractor will be installing the storm drain in Monroe Street and Harrison Street over the next several weeks.

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


July 31, 2019 update:  We are installing a 20-inch waterline on 10600 South from 700 East to 1300 East. The contract has been signed by the City and the construction company. We have produced the Notice to Proceed.  It is anticipated that the contractor will start work in June. Once work begins, they have 120 days to complete the project.  The final day to finish is October 15, 2019.
