The Uintah County Commission opened bids for work on the Ashley Valley Flood Control project during Monday’s Commission meeting. Local company bids included Epic Engineering for $81,000 and Jones Demille/Sunrise Engineering for $49,800. A third bid was received from H&A Entellus Inc. out of Bountiful for $60,383. Commissioner Mark Raymond explained that a review would now be performed on the bids to make sure they meet the requirements of the project after which they will be brought back before the Commission in a future meeting and a bid will be awarded. The project is a revisit of the original Ashley Valley Flood Plan which was a broader overview of the project. “The [Ashley Valley Plan] had some recommendations but was not terribly specific,” shared Commissioner Stringer. “This is the next step to take a look at what specific areas are at risk of flooding.” The County has been exploring ways to mitigate flood risks in the Ashley Valley in recent years and received funding for the project through the Community Impact Board earlier this year.
