HAL provides full engineering design services for civil projects, plus services during bidding and construction.
The City of Bluffdale, Utah, is now building a 4-million-gallon triangular water tank that HAL designed to fit in a tight space. The tank and accompanying pipeline will improve service in the lower parts of the city.

The City of Bluffdale revamped an old irrigation well and built a new well house to match the newly constructed apartments surrounding it. The project included a temporary pumping setup and a temporary water right to immediately being operating until permanent arrangements could be made.
In order for Saratoga Springs, Utah, to continue to grow at its current rate, additional storage was needed in its pressurized irrigation system. HAL provided design and construction management services for a 17-acre-foot concrete-lined storage pond and a 3,200 gallon-per-minute pump station.
HAL designed, permitted, and oversaw construction of a new hazardous waste landfill cell, the first in Utah in 25 years.

HAL planned, designed, and oversaw construction of a 10,000 gpm irrigation pump station adjacent to Utah Lake. The new project provides water to the City’s growing southern area and allows the City to utilize Utah Lake water rights rather than canals.
HAL was recently selected to design three new deep, large-diameter wells for the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, extending HAL’s role into the next phase of the largest groundwater development project in Utah.
HAL completed a detailed hydraulic analysis to refine proposed storage locations and piping modifications. Following the analysis, HAL provided engineering services for the design, bidding, and construction of two new storage tanks and transmission pipelines.
The Central Utah Water Conservancy District contracted HAL to plan, design, and manage a groundwater development project that will supply water to some 160,000 people. The project is the largest of its kind in Utah, with some of the state’s largest and deepest wells.
HAL helped Kearns Improvement District design and permit a new water tank and pipeline on a busy site while maintaining access, water service, and public acceptance during construction.
The Utah Department of Transportation is reconstructing three intersections along Bangerter Highway to improve traffic flow and safety. The new design requires relocation of existing South Valley Sewer District pipelines. HAL provided study and design of a new sewer route, plus survey, easements, stakeholder involvement, agency coordination, and services during construction.
HAL assisted the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources with design review and construction support for a new fish screen at Red Fleet Reservoir near Vernal, Utah. The screen keeps non-native game fish from entering the Colorado River system where they would otherwise compete with endangered species.

HAL prepared designs and specifications for the Jordan River Diversion Structure Replacement. The structure, located on Utah’s Jordan River just north of 2100 South in Salt Lake City, diverts a portion of the Surplus Canal flow into the Jordan River to meet downstream irrigation requirements and control flood flows. The project features two motor-driven 10′ × 14′ radial gates, energy dissipation blocks within the gate, precast 10′ × 5′ box culverts, and downstream erosion protection.
HAL was part of a multi-firm team that designed this $18 million project in Cache County, Utah. It enclosed several canals using precast concrete box culvert, cast-in-place concrete box culvert, reinforced concrete pipe (RCP), PVC pipe, and HDPE pipe. The project also included a new diversion structure on the Logan River with fish screens and an automatic brush cleaning system. The project was designed, constructed, and opened in just over one year. In 2013 it was named “Outstanding Municipal/Utility Project” by Utah Construction & Design.
HAL planned, designed, and provided construction engineering services for the Peoples Canal Piping Project in Daggett County, Utah. The project enclosed the existing canal with nearly 8 miles of HDPE pipe with diameters ranging from 24 to 48 inches. The project met of all of its goals—including completion before the irrigation season—and has conserved water, reduced operating costs, and improved reliability. The project won an Engineering Excellence Merit Award from ACEC Utah.
This drinking water project in Draper, Utah, included design and construction of a booster pump station with two 400 horsepower, 1700 gallon-per-minute vertical turbine pumps with pump barrels. The project required geotechnical investigation, hydraulic analysis, transient surge analysis, surge tank design, building design, variable frequency drive design, and a chiller cooling system.
For Granger-Hunter Improvement District, HAL provided the design of a 4-million-gallon rectangular reinforced concrete storage tank and an 18-inch-diameter inlet/outlet pipeline. The project included permitting, site surveying, geotechnical evaluation, and design of the reservoir, valve vault, piping, and overflow pipeline. It also included electrical design and construction, tying into GHID’s existing SCADA system, and preparing a detailed landscape and irrigation plan to meet local requirements.
South Salt Lake City selected HAL to design and manage construction of 3,800 feet of 30-inch-diameter trunk sewer along Andy Avenue, 300 West, and Utopia Avenue. The project included surveying, loading calculations, hydraulic modeling, geotechnical issues, pipeline design, conflicting utilities, UTA Trax (light rail) crossing design, easements, and cost estimation.
Davis County, Utah, selected HAL to design and assist during the construction of improvements to the Barton Creek flood conveyance system. The project included the design and construction of 3,200 feet of 9′ × 4′ box culvert placed in interstate highway and commuter rail rights-of-way. The project utilized open cutting in the 500 West underpass crossing of I-15 northbound lanes, open-cut crossing of I-15 southbound lanes, and open-cut crossing of Pages Lane.
HAL assisted with the construction of two wastewater pump stations for Granger-Hunter Improvement District. Both are of the dry well / wet well prefabricated type. The Valley Downs Pump Station includes two pumps rated at 500 gallons per minute; the Wheeler Pump Station contains two pumps rated at 650 gallons per minute. Both pump stations are approximately 30 feet deep and were constructed inside sheet piling to accommodate small construction sites in residential neighborhoods. Both feature backup power generation.
