Sandy City, Utah, experienced a fluoride overfeed at one of its drinking water wells in February 2019. HAL investigated the cause, developed a forensic hydraulic model, and prepared the final report.
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 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 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.
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.
For over 40 years HAL has provided water rights engineering support to municipalities, private clients, and over 20 legal firms in Utah and Idaho. Services have included due diligence and site investigations supporting land purchases, surface and groundwater studies, water use evaluations, water right ownership evaluations, new filings, diligence claims, change applications, proof of appropriation, proof of beneficial use, and water right hearing support.
The City of Moab is experiencing considerable pressure from new residential and commercial growth. HAL partnered with Zions Public Finance for a series of plans and assessments. HAL performed planning and modeling for the capital facilities plan (CFP) and impact fee facility plan (IFFP). Zions Public Finance took HAL’s IFFP to the next step by preparing an impact fee assessment (IFA) and rate study.
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 completed a major update to Spanish Fork City’s Drinking Water Master Plan. Key technical issues included understanding the City’s multi-zone water distribution system, projecting water demands that consider the long-term effects of drought and conservation, developing innovative approaches to pipe network modeling, and updating the City’s GIS-based water infrastructure database.
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.
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.
Highland City, Utah, has grown rapidly in recent years, straining its wastewater collection system. Consequently, the City desired a master plan that would both address existing system deficiencies and recommend future infrastructure to support further growth. HAL completed a Wastewater Collection System Master Plan with a schedule of capital projects to meet these needs.
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.
