2020-902 Pond Maintenance Project
This project includes storm sewer repair at Utah Pond, 8734 Utah Ave S, and sediment excavation at Woodbridge Marsh, 9325 Ensign Ave S and 8401 W 96th St.
The storm sewer repair at Utah Pond will replace an old corrugated metal pipe with a similar pipe coated with an aluminized coating. Once started, the work is expected to be completed within a week.
Excavation work at Woodbridge Marsh will remove sediment at three sites on the north side and one site on the south end, where the outlet structure will be replaced with a structure that is less prone to clogging.
Work is expected to begin in late January or early February and be substantially complete by early March 2021. Final restoration is expected to be completed by May, 2021.

This past week, the Contractor removed and replaced the old pipe at Utah Pond. The site restoration, with the exception of the seeding and erosion control blanket, was restored and stabilized. Crews will return in the spring to get turf established.
At Woodbridge Marsh, the Contractor has completed the preliminary site work to gain access to the pond. Excavation of sediment has begun and will continue on February 9. The sediment is being stockpiled on the shoreline so it can dry out a bit and solidify prior to being hauled off site.

Work will begin this week at Woodbridge Marsh. Crews will begin removing brush from the shoreline on Thursday and excavation of the pond sediment will begin the week of February 1. The material excavated will remain on site in order to dry out before it is hauled away beginning February 10.
Work at Utah Pond will be performed the week of February 8 and expected to last the rest of the week. Once work at both sites is finished, the sites will be covered for the remainder of the winter. If needed, more restoration will be done in the spring once growing conditions are favorable.
