Projects Currently Under Construction

Per the Tenney Ranch Development Agreement, a detention basin was to be designed in associate with the Tenney Ranch development by the City within Acker Park. The City awarded the design contract to Shephard-Wesnitzer, Inc. (SWI) to design the regional detention basin. The basin has been designed to detain 15 acre feet of storage during larger storm events, which will reduce flooding downstream of the basin. The construction project was awarded to Fann Contracting earlier this summer. Currently the basin is excavated and the berm construction completed. During the last month of construction, the basin spillway will be constructed; gabion baskets will be installed at the basin inlet areas and below the spillway and the basin will be landscaped with native low used landscaping to blend in with the surrounding vegetation.

This project will consist of design and construction of a new 5 million gallon welded steel water tank. The new tank will reflect the nominal dimensions and exact base elevation of the current tank located at the City's Water Production Facility in the Town of Chino Valley and will be located to the east of the existing tank. The proposed tank location will require grading and engineered fill work for the tank pad as well as piping to connect the tank to the existing system. The project will include some minor landscape work, and site security will be incorporated into the new tank project.

The construction project was awarded to Fann Contracting on May 9, 2017. Grading work for the tank pad is nearly complete. Steel delivery and construction of the tank should begin in early August. The contractor will continue with site improvements while the tank construction is underway. There are no impacts to traffic or residents anticipated with this project. Construction should be completed by January 2018.
