The North Wetmore Stormwater Separation project will advertise for bids on Tuesday, February 20.
A project to end chronic basement & surface flooding
The project is located in the Northwest neighborhood. The work includes construction of a separated storm drainage collection system that will convey stormwater flows to detention ponds on the Legion Memorial Golf Course site. A schematic of the proposed storm drain system is shown in the Project Area map. North Wetmore Stormwater Separation project is Phase 2 of a project formerly called “Northwest Neighborhood Stormwater Separation (NWSS) Project.” The project is now divided into three parts:
This webpage is for the North Wetmore Stormwater Separation Project. Information related to Alverson Stormwater Separation Project will be posted on a separate webpage at a later date.
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, Hoyt, Colby and Wetmore between 4th and 10th Street and at Everett Community College Rainier Hall. 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.
Although these improvements are primarily to minimize 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.
