Ogden Canyon Update

Dear Ogden Canyon Waterline Stakeholders,

Installation of the 24-inch main waterline has been completed.  There is still some work to do in order to get the main line in service and restore individual connections, but the 24-inch line is completely installed.  Whitaker Construction will be chlorinating and testing the Phase 4 pipe over the next few days, and get it ready to be back in service on Monday.  As such, there will be a few water shutoffs and hard closures of traffic over the next week.  They are as follows:

·         Monday, June 24, 2013 – 12-Hour Water Shutoff
o   This shutoff will affect residences east of The Hermitage subdivision.  The contractor will begin draining the line at 5:00pm in order to fully reconnect the new 24-inch main line and put it back into service.  Water should be restored by 5:00am on Tuesday morning.
·         Tuesday, June 25, 2013 – Roaming Water Shutoffs
o   Beginning at 7:00am on Tuesday, June 25, through 7:00am on Thursday, June 27, there will be roaming water shutoffs for all the residents located within the fourth phase of construction.  These shutoffs will last for a maximum of 6 hours, and there will only be one shutoff per connection.  The purpose of these shutoffs is to fully restore the water service connections that are currently on temporary water.
·         Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, June 24-26 – Canyon Closed to Through Traffic
o   SR-39 in Ogden Canyon will be closed to all through traffic on these nights in order to connect each of the 8-inch water services that extend across the roadway.  The exact locations of each closure depend upon the amount of work completed each night.  We will provide more information before each closure to explain the location in order to help Canyon residents living in the fourth phase of construction determine the proper route of travel.

Looking Ahead:
At the end of next week, the contractor will move back down to the first phase to begin removing and replacing the temporary asphalt.  We will send out a notice a few days before this happens detailing the process and explaining the anticipated timeline for completion.

We want to thank everyone for your patience during this project.  We understand that this has been an inconvenience to a lot of people, and we are grateful for everyone’s help in ensuring the project’s successful completion.

Best regards,

Jason M. Allen, P.E. Public Involvement
