2009 Excellence in Concrete Award
Mapleton Mountain Water Tank
The project consisted of constructing a 4 million gallon, free standing, rectangular, concrete water tank. The water tank was set above protected environmental easement. A 120 ft. vertical excavation was needed to start the concrete phase of the construction. The tank was set at an elevation of 5250 ft. and backfilled to 2 ft. above the top of the tank.

Spanish Fork Provo Reservoir Canal Pipeline-Orem Reach 1B
The Orem Reach 1B project is a project to provide water from the Strawberry Reservoir through the pipeline to the location of the vault/structure located at the mouth of Provo Canyon. The concrete structure allows the owner to discharge water into the Provo River to maintain water flows or to send water via the Provo River Aqueduct to various water agencies in Utah and Salt Lake Counties. The concrete structure is built on a solid bed rock with concrete fill placed below the structure for stability. THe structure has many large pie penetrations and angles that made concrete construction challenging. The structure is partially below grade and above grade. The exterior received a brick veneer and stucco finish. The structure allows the owner to supply water that will be a major key component to the expansion and growth of Utah in the coming years.

Alpine Watershed Protection Project
Project Description: The original project consisted of installing emergency watershed protection (EWP) measures that included enlarging an irrigation pond, excavating and re-grading drainage channels. It included installing a box culvert, rip rap, and drainage piping, constructing a concrete flood wall, and installing permanent silt fence.  A week after project improvements there was a 100 year storm, there was some minor erosion of private property caused by the flood, and it identified deficient areas in the City’s approach to flood control. At their request, Van Con met with Alpine City to provide value engineering and suggestions on how to best correct the deficiencies and to help secure additional funding from the NRCS. As a result, an additional drainage levee lined with rip rap was approved and installed. However, another larger 150-year storm wiped out and severely damaged most of the EWP measures previously installed. Our crews were called out in the middle of the night to clear drainage channels of debris and dig emergency detention ponds to help control flood water, and remained on standby through the weekend in case there were additional storms. Van Con’s ability to meet tight NRCS’s required deadlines and milestone allowed Alpine to secure the funding necessary to install a storm drain system consisting of 1,850 lf of 36”RCP, 865 lf of 48” RCP, 500 lf of 60” RCP and 141 lf of 84” RCP, with large inlet/outlet structures, catch basins, a channelizing levee with riprap and seeding, and surface restorations.
