The Engineering Division of Ogden City works mainly in designing, monitoring and improving the infrastructure of the city. Working closely with the City's Water, Sewer, Storm Drain, and Street Divisions, Ogden City engineers determine the utility needs for an ever-evolving city.
As part of an ongoing effort to improve the quality of utility services available to residents, it occasionally becomes necessary to construct water tanks and pipelines along Ogden's hillsides or to tear up roads to replace aging and inadequate utility pipes. These temporary inconveniences help ensure a better quality of life for residents in the future.
ATTENTION - Holiday Moratorium Zone goes into Effect Tuesday, November 15th
- No new permits issued within the Downtown Holiday Moratorium Zone between Wednesday, November 15, 2023 and Wednesday, January 3, 2024 except for utility emergencies. Emergency permits must be authorized by the City Engineer.
- All open permits within the Downtown Seasonal Moratorium Zone must be finished and closed out (including road patches) by no later than Tuesday, November 21, 2023
Winter Concrete Requirements begin November 20th!
As we move into the cold weather, we will be using the 7 ½ bag mix for all concrete work in Ogden City, this requirement will start Monday, November 20. Please keep this in mind when ordering concrete for any work scheduled in the Ogden City Right-of-Way
Please review APWA 03 30 10 Concrete Placement (page 205), 3.4 Concrete Placement,
C. Cold Weather Placement: ACI 306. Non-chloride accelerating admixture may be used in concrete work placed at ambient temperatures below 50 deg. F. Use of admixtures will not relax cold weather placement, curing, or protection requirements. If air temperature is forecasted to fall below 32 deg F. within 14 days of placement proceed as follows:
- Provide cold weather protection (cover, insulation, heat, etc.).
- Do not use chemical “anit-freeze” additives in the concrete. (NOTE: this does not apply to normal accelerators.)
- Do not proceed with the placement of concrete until the temperature of all contact surfaces is 35 degrees F and ambient temperature is ascending.
- Protect the concrete from freezing until a compressive strength of at least 90 percent of design strength has been achieved, determined by either:
- Maturity meter. Refer to AASHTO T 324, or
- Field cured cylinders.
- Adequately vent combustion-type heathers that produces carbon monoxide.
- When applying external heat, maintain moist conditions to avoid excessive moisture loss from concrete.
- When removing heat, limit drop in temperature of concrete surfaces 20 degrees F during any 12 hour period until the surface temperature of the concrete reaches that of the atmosphere.
2020 Engineering Standards for Public Improvements
The 2020 Engineering Standards for Public Improvements document is available for download as a PDF document. This document includes all current engineering standards and specification, and is required on all public improvement projects.
Please refer to the Documents & Links page for separate sections of the Engineering standards, as well as details and standards related to specific types of jobs.
