Additional costs for city project

Michael Schneider

The South Lake Tahoe City Council in April allocated $2.1 million to White Rock Construction for the completion of Phase 2 of the Ski Run Water Quality Project.

Tuesday, council members will consider allocating another $27,618 of city funds to White Rock for unexpected costs.

“Assumed conditions were not reflected in the field conditions,” said Chuck Taylor, associate civil engineer, explaining the reason for the added costs.

Taylor said gas, power, telephone and sewer utility conflicts required proposed storm drain pipe alignments be changed.

In order to allow the pipes to do their job without conflicting with the other lines, the crews had to excavate an extra half-foot of soil.

The Ski Run Water Quality Improvement Project began in May to complete work on the semi-constructed water detention ponds as well as provide curbs and gutters along U.S. Highway 50.

Construction is scheduled to be complete June 15.
