  1. 1/30/2015 PLATTE CANYON PREPARES FOR THIS YEAR'S CONSTRUCTION SEASON
  2. With spring and summer comes construction season and a continuation of Platte Canyon’s efforts to repair, rehabilitate and replace portions of the District’s water distribution and wastewater collection systems. Platte Canyon plans to kick off two capital improvement projects this year:

     

    Columbine West Pump Station Rehabilitation

     

    An engineering needs assessment of the Columbine West Pump Station has been commissioned and should be completed later this year. Upon completion of the needs assessment, District staff and the District’s consultant, Merrick & Company, will determine a scope of work for rehabilitation and upgrading the pump station.

     

    The 43 year old Columbine West pump station provides peak water flow and fire flow capability to 330 homes in the Columbine West Subdivision located generally between South Pierce Street, West Coal Mine Avenue, South Wadsworth Boulevard, and West Ken Caryl Avenue. The current engineering assessment includes evaluation of two variable speed pumps and motors, the constant speed auxiliary fire pump and motor, steel inlet and outlet piping, and the variable speed control system. Numerous small leaks have occurred on the steel piping within the pump station, and the pumps and motors have not been replaced or had major work since they were installed in 1972. The budgeted cost for this project is $718,750.

    Sewer Pipe Rehabilitation

     

    Over the past two years, District operations staff have conducted a comprehensive condition assessment of all 8-inch and 12-inch concrete sewer pipe. All 17,826 feet of concrete pipe has been scheduled for rehabilitation between 2014 and 2019. The first phase of rehabilitation occurred in 2014 with the cured-in-place lining of 1,814 feet of 8-inch and 625 feet of 12-inch concrete pipe in the Columbine Heights Subdivision.

     

    Phase two of the small diameter concrete sewer rehabilitation project consists of cured-in-place lining of 3,383 feet of 8-inch pipe in West Rowland Avenue, South Normandy Circle, West Quarles Drive, and South Windsor Court in the Normandy Estates Subdivision. Forty service connections will be reestablished and fourteen manholes will be spray lined as part of the project. The estimated cost of the project including design engineering and contingencies is $201,020.
