  1. 12/21/2007 CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS PLANNED FOR 2008
  2. The Platte Canyon Board of Directors has approved three capital construction replacement projects for 2008.  The projects, which are expected to cost $612,831, are part of the District’s Capital Master Plan for 2008-2017.  The plan projects expenditure of $5,075,584 for water and sewer system replacements and improvements and $1,012,000 for vehicle replacements over the next ten years.
     
    This year’s capital plan employs the evaluation method created by District personnel in 2007 for evaluating and scheduling pipeline rehabilitation projects.  Each of the District’s 1,016 water and 1,877 sewer pipelines were evaluated based on facility age, material type, failure rate and other important subjective factors.  This evaluation process resulted in a priority listing of pipelines scheduled for rehabilitation or replacement.  A detailed description of the evaluation rating criteria can be found in the Capital Master Plan located here.
     
    Projects scheduled for construction in 2008 include the following:
     
    Water
     
    • S. Depew St.
    695 feet of 8-inch water pipe will be replaced in S. Depew St., between W. Coal Mine Ave. and W. Ontario Ave. in the Normandy Estates Subdivision.  The project is expected to cost $168,802.
     
    • Dutch Creek Dr.
    796 feet of 6-inch water pipe will be replaced in Dutch Creek Dr. between Meadowlark Ln. and Glenridge Dr. in the Columbine Heights Subdivision.  This project is expected to cost $175,757.
     
    • W. Hinsdale Cir.
    1,215 feet of 6-inch water pipe will be replaced in W. Hinsdale Cir. between S. Platte Canyon Dr. (south intersection) and S. Platte Canyon Dr. (north intersection) in the Columbine Manor Subdivision.  This project is expected to cost $268,272.
     
     
    Sewer
     
    No sanitary sewer replacement projects are scheduled for 2008.  However, expenditure of $75,000 is being proposed for cured-in-place pipeline rehabilitation of sewer mains that are found to be either structurally deficient or heavily infiltrated with roots.  The location and scheduling for these rehabilitation projects is determined by routine sewer video inspections.  An annual contract is awarded to a single sewer rehabilitation contractor to conduct repair and rehabilitation projects on an as needed and authorized basis.
