Yauger Park Regional Stormwater Facility Expansion

Client: City of Olympia, Washington

Clear Creek Solutions (CCS) and Davido Consulting Group (DCG) were selected by the City of Olympia to assist in the proposed expansion of a joint-use recreation and stormwater flow control facility.

Project Goals

The project goals and site constraints included factors such as:

  • maintaining use of ball fields
  • trails and other recreation facilities
  • expanding available detention volume
  • improved water quality facilities
  • providing public parking
  • improving maintenance access to stormwater facilities

Process and Solution

DCG worked with the Public Works Department as well as Parks staff to define several conceptual approaches, identify parking alternatives, and calculate additional stormwater detention volume with preliminary construction costs for each approach.

CCS provided the hydrologic and hydraulic modeling using WWHM4, with its combined HSPF and SWMM software, to analyze existing flooding problems and evaluate proposed solutions.

The modeling included the sizing of water quality treatment wetlands, bioretention facilities, and permeable pavement surfaces.

Result

DCG assisted the City in successfully obtaining Federal American Recovery Act funding and designed the $2M green infrastructure water quality treatment facility including:

  • water quality treatment wetlands
  • bioretention facilities
  • permeable pavement
  • water harvesting
  • park amenities (bicycle shelters, trails, boardwalk, disc golf course improvements)

Year Start: 2009
Year End: 2011

Our Projects

Land Development Stormwater Analysis
Land Development Stormwater Analysis

A private client contracted with Clear Creek Solutions to investigate potential downstream flooding in conjunction with a proposed land development in Western Washington. The development will be constructed to provide direct discharge from the project site through a tide gate to Puget Sound.

Government Canal Stormwater Analysis Study
