These exhibits below show utility pipes and ponds layout, golf course improvements/restoration and interim routing for 18 holes during construction.
Summary of Changes
During construction, temporary holes are provided to retain a full 18-hole course.
Final Determination of Nonsignificance issued December 19, 2017.
The City completed preliminary planning in 2016 to define sewer and drainage system improvements needed for elimination of basement flooding and surface flooding in the 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 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.
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. 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 projects:
