September 2019 Update
Progress - Through the end of July 2019, North 2 Utilities Extension Project (UEP) utility contractors have installed approximately 1.4 million linear feet (LF) of potable water, gravity sewer, irrigation water, and wastewater force main, replaced over 73,000 LF of storm drain piping, and installed 1,329 drainage inlets, 1,276 sewer manholes and 585 fire hydrants. This equates to approximately 90 percent completion of the underground utilities. In addition, approximately 103 lane-miles of streets have been repaved with the first 1-inch thick lift of asphalt, which equates to about 54% of the total project. Driveway reconstruction and swale restoration activities are also continuing following the completion of the first lift of paving.
Substantial and Final Completion of Utilities - As portions of the project near completion, contraEctors are beginning to request substantial completion. Substantial completion includes completion of all underground utilities, completion of the first lift of asphalt on the roadways, and completion of driveway and swale restoration in a given area. The City is working with the contractors to develop a list of incomplete items (or “punchlist”) for a given area that must be completed by the contractors before the City agrees to final completion for that area. All unresolved items that have been reported to the UEP public information office (833-CAPEUEP) are automatically added to the “punchlist”. These typically include mailbox repair or replacement, sprinkler repair, driveway damage and the like. If you have such an item that has not been reported, you can have it added to the punchlist by contacting the number listed above.
Notice of Availability – When the City deems a given area to be substantially complete, the City will mail a Notice of Availability (NOA) to all owners of developed property within the given area. Owners of developed properties will have 180 days after receipt of the NOA to connect to City water, sewer and/or irrigation, as appropriate. The NOA provides directions on how to apply for an account with the City, how to obtain required permits and approvals, as well as additional pertinent information regarding water, sewer and irrigation connection and service. In addition, owners of undeveloped properties will receive a postcard notifying them that water, sewer and/or irrigation service is now available at their property.
