Legion Golf Course

A project to end chronic basement & surface flooding


​Map this project on the interactive project overview story map.

Project Up​date - April 2018

 

On January 9, 2018, bids were received from 14 bidders. Rodarte Construction of Auburn, Wash., submitted the lowest bid ($3,760,658.25) and was awarded the contract to construct various utility piping and two new stormwater detention ponds on Legion Memorial Golf Course. Construction began in March and should be completed by October 2018.

Project Design
These exhibits below show utility pipes and ponds layout, golf course improvements/restoration and interim routing for 18 holes during construction.

Summary of Proposed Changes

  • Addition of a new pond between holes 4 and 5
  • Enlargement of the existing pair of ponds near the greens for holes 3 and 5
  • Hole 3 will be divided into two separate holes (new holes 12 and 13)
  • Holes 4 & 5 are remodeled (new holes 14 & 15)
  • Hole 6 tee box area will be raised (new hole 16)
  • All Holes will be renumbered – “front 9” becomes the “back 9” and vice versa
  • Existing hole 9 is eliminated from course sequence, (still available if needed)
  • Par becomes 71
  • See additional information on the golf course site

During construction, temporary holes are provided to retain a full 18-hole course.

Project Background


During 2016, the City completed preliminary planning to define sewer and drainage system improvements needed for elimination of basement flooding and surface flooding in the general area of Alverson, Grand, Rucker and Hoyt, Colby and Wetmore between 4th and 10th Street and at Everett Community College Rainier Hall (a project formerly called “Northwest Neighborhood Stormwater Separation (NWSS) Project”). The results of that study determined that a new separate storm drainage network should be constructed in this area – similar to the work done in the nearby Sewer M area to the south, however no sewer replacement is needed.  A large study area was examined to define the maximum extent of possible future expansions of the storm drainage separation network to further enhance the various system benefits. 


Purpose

Although these improvements are primarily to reduce or eliminate basement and surface flooding, they will also help the environment by reducing combined sewer overflows into the Snohomish River. The project will benefit from the collaboration of several stakeholders: City of Everett (Public Works), City of Everett Parks/Legion Memorial Golf Course and Everett Community College.  In particular, the pond network on the Legion Memorial Golf Course offers a logical and cost effective opportunity for stormwater detention – a place to put storm runoff from City streets and alleys, from Everett Community College, and from the golf course itself. Implementation of the necessary improvements involves three separate construction:
