North 1 Utilities Extension Project
North 1 UEP is in the northeast quadrant of the City and will complete the extension of water, sewer and irrigation services to the three areas (Southwest 6/7, North 2, and North 1) that were approved by City Council in 2012.
City Staff presented a North 1 UEP Project Update to City Council on October 13, 2021. Due to past concerns that the UEP areas are too large, City staff brought forward a split of the North 1 UEP with Area “A” (West of Del Prado) and Area “B” (East of Del Prado) per the attached plan. There is an additional area to the east of the Project (Contract 11) that will be completed with the North 1 Project. The design of the original boundary of North 1 is approximately 80% complete with Phase 1-A at 90% complete and Phase 1-B at 70% complete with Contract 11 at approximately 30% complete.
The N1 UEP design includes 14 new Lift Stations, 2 existing Lift Stations which will require upgrades, two Master Pump Stations, two Irrigation Storage Tanks, replacement of existing storm drain pipes, replacement of existing catch basins, and newly paved roads. Currently, the design anticipates multiple contracts for the Utilities, 1 contract for the two Master Pump Stations, and 1 contract for the two 5 MG Irrigation Tanks w/Booster Pump Station (Storage Tanks).
