Updated August 2019

18B: 4100 South Waterline Replacement - Bangerter Highway to 5600 West

Consultant: Horrocks Engineers (WVC/UDOT - Local Governments Project)

Contractor: Geneva Rock Products, Inc.

Status: Geneva and BT Gallegos (subcontractor for most of the waterline installation) have made excellent progress on new 12-inch pipe. The crews have installed new 12-inch main from near Bangerter Highway to approximately 4800 West (and are still working on pressure testing and lateral connections). The project is on schedule with completion still scheduled for Summer 2020. GHID staff are working with PEC and Utah DDW personnel to ensure documentation for the State DDW loan is completed.

18C: Meter 80 Piping & Breeze Chemical Feed Project

Consultant: Hansen, Allen & Luce, Inc.

Contractor: Burlington Civil, Inc.

Status: A punch list walkthrough was held on July 8, 2019. The walkthrough revealed that although most of the large cost and long lead items have been installed, the project is only 80-percent complete and a lot of loose ends need to be tied-up.

On July 10, 2019 the District was informed that the Contractor was going out of business and was pulling their crew from the job. On July 12, 2019, the Contractor filed for Bankruptcy. This is a bonded project and the District has been working with the Contractor’s bonding company to complete the remainder of the work under the terms of the Performance Bond. The Bonding Agent informed the District that his company is working through the legal process resulting from the Contractor’s bankruptcy and if all goes well, they may be able to hire another contractor by the end of August to complete this job.

18D: Wells No. 12 & 14 Chemical Treatment

Consultant: Hansen, Allen & Luce, Inc.

Contractor: Widdison Turbine Service (Well 12); Petersen Brothers Drilling (Well 14)

Status: The chemical treatment for Well 12 is complete. The Contractor has installed the chemical feed tubes and plans to install the column pipe and new pump and motor by the end of August.

18F: Hillsdale WWPS Decommissioning & Gravity Sewer

Consultant: CRS Engineers

Contractor: Lance Excavating, Inc.

Status: The Contractor started work the first week in July. Several well points have been installed to assist with groundwater control. The drawings did not show all the utilities on 2700 West and four additional utilities were found during construction. The Contractor will bore under all the utilities because of the difficulties of open-cut trenching through this section. The boring should be completed by the end of August.

18G: MVC Waterline Betterments

Consultant: Parsons Transportation Group, Inc. and CRS Engineers

Contractor: Mountain View Corridor Constructors (A Kiewitt-Clyde Joint Venture)

Contractor: To be determined

Status: The District evaluated proposals from 12 contractors interested in being prequalified to bid on this project. Nine of these proposals were accepted. The completed contract documents, technical specifications, design drawings, categorical exclusion, and request for minimum separation exception were submitted to the Division of Drinking Water (DDW) for review on June 17, 2019. The DDW approved the bidding documents on August 13, 2019.

19D: PRV Upgrades & Large Meter Replacements

Consultant: Forsgren Associates, Inc.

Status: The design work is in progress.

19F: 3600 West Waterline Project

Consultant: PSOMAS

Contractor: To be determined

Status: The existing 8-inch cast iron waterline mostly within the 3600 West right-of-way and between the Granger- Hunter Improvement District’s Sorenson Tank and 4700 South has experienced several breaks and needs to be replaced. However, per the recommendation in the District’s 2016 Drinking Water Master Plan, the District needs to upsize the 8-inch waterline to an 18-inch which would allow the Sorenson Tank to operate more effectively as a Zone 3 storage facility. Also, to address some minor deficiencies mentioned in the 2015 Sanitary Survey for the Sorenson Tank, the District needs to upgrade the existing access hatch with a close-fitting gasketed shoebox type cover and modify the overflow pipe so it has an air gap.
