Downspout Disconnection A Great Spring Project in Everett

downspout disconnection

If you live within the green shaded area you may be eligible for free downspout disconnection. Click photo to enlarge.

The City of Everett has a suggestion for a downspout disconnection project to add to your spring to-do list if you live within the combined sewer area of Everett. The attached map shows the area where both stormwater and wastewater combine together to flow to the wastewater treatment plant. By disconnecting your downspout from the sewer system you can help relieve some of the pressure on the system during heavy rains. The City of Everett has a program where you may be able to quality for free help in doing your downspout disconnection. Here are a few more details…

Benefits
Correctly disconnecting your downspouts from the sewer system helps reduce some of the stress heavy rainfall has on the combined system. A combined system is where pipes carry both wastewater (water from our toilets and house / business drains) and stormwater (rain or snow that washes off streets / roofs) to the wastewater treatment plant.

Disconnecting the Downspout
Disconnecting your downspout can be accomplished fairly easily with an elbow, pipe extension, and splash block. If done correctly, it helps direct water away from your house to a suitable area where the runoff can spread and soak into the surrounding landscape or another pre-designated area.

Minimum Requirements
Besides having a suitable area for water runoff, other factors determining the success of downspout disconnection include having adequate distance from adjacent property lines, the amount of slope your property has, and assurances that excess water will not affect neighboring properties. If your property does not meet these minimum requirements, downspout disconnection is not recommended.

City of Everett’s Program
The City of Everett is partnering with the Snohomish Conservation District to inspect specific northwest neighborhood downspouts in the combined sewer area. If your downspouts qualify for the program, Snohomish Conservation District, with assistance from its partners, will design and install a downspout disconnection system for your home at no expense to you.

Contact Apryl Hynes for more information about this program at 425-257-8992.

Everett Silvertips Goalie Tops In CHL

Everett Silvertips goalie Everett Silvertips goalie Carter Hart has been named the top goalie in the Canadian Hockey League. It’s kind of a big deal as the CHL is the world’s largest development hockey league with 52 Canadian and eight American teams participating in the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Western Hockey League. Here’s the scoop from the ‘Tips…

Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips) goaltender Carter Hart has been named recipient of the Vaughn Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Year award, announced today in conjunction with the CHL at the 2016 MasterCard Memorial Cup festivities in Red Deer.

Hart, 17, adds to his resume as the first Silvertip goaltender to capture the award in the franchise’s 13 seasons, in addition to earning the Del Wilson Memorial Trophy as WHL Goaltender of the Year in his second full WHL campaign.

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound goaltender earned 35 wins this regular season, leading the league and was second in goals against average (2.14), tied for second in shutouts (6), and second in minutes (3,693), en route to a 35-23-1-3 record and First Team All-Star selection in the Western Conference of the WHL.

He earned his first career playoff shutout in the second round, this season against the Seattle Thunderbirds in Game 1 (26 saves in a 3-0 victory) and has posted a 53-29-3-7 record with a 2.22 goals against average and a .917 save percentage with 10 shutouts in 95 career WHL regular season appearances with the Silvertips.

Named Silvertips Most Valuable Player in 2015-16, Hart was named WHL Goaltender of the Week four times this season, named CHL Goaltender of the Week in December, captured the league’s Goaltender of the Month award in November, and suited up in the CHL/NHL Prospects Game in Vancouver. Prior to this season, he earned a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2015 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup.

Hart is listed as the #2 ranked goaltender (North American) in the final draft rankings, produced by NHL Central Scouting. He will be one of 114 players across the world eligible for the 2016 National Hockey League Entry Draft invited to this year’s NHL Scouting Combine, scheduled for May 30-June 4 at First Niagara Center and the HarborCenter in Buffalo.

2016-17 SCHEDULE, TICKET INFORMATION

The Silvertips will announce their 2016-17 schedule soon, offering full season tickets, 22-game, and 14-game plans for as little as $200 total per seat. Deposits for $50 secure a seat by visiting the Silvertips deposit portal.

Call 8-1-1 Before You Dig

A timely reminder from Snohomish PUD that can help you keep safe and avoid a really big repair bill…

8-1-1

Don’t become one of our news stories, be sure to call 8-1-1 before you dig.

There’s warmer weather just around the corner, and many of us will be tackling outdoor projects. Snohomish County Public Utility District reminds its customers to plan ahead to prevent accidentally hitting an underground utility line when digging.

PUD customers should use the “Call before you dig” hotline at 811 at least two working days ahead of time before starting a digging project of more than 12 inches deep, including landscaping, remodeling and fencing. 811 hotline staff will work to provide the locations of lines that serve power, gas, water, sewer and/or telephone utilities that are located along the right of way of a resident’s property.

The PUD owns and maintains underground services on private property for residential single family homes and will mark lines up to customers’ meters. Apartment buildings, schools and mobile home parks may need to retain a private locator, depending on meter locations. Private locators are available to provide this service for a fee.

The “Call before you dig” 811 hotline is a free service, which is required by law. Severed utility cables or water lines not only inconvenience people, they are expensive to repair. If you dig in and interrupt power or water service, it is restored at your cost. Be sure to call ahead!
