The City recently 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.
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. The project is now divided into three parts:
Legion Golf Course Stormwater Detention Project
Wetmore Ave. Stormwater Separation Project
Alverson Blvd Stormwater Separation Project
This webpage is for the Legion Golf Course Stormwater Detention Project. Information related to the other two projects will be posted on separate webpages at a later date. The Legion Golf Course Stormwater Detention Project is now beginning the design phase. An approximate timeline for the overall project is listed below.
