Linden Golf Course Oxbow Setback Levee

The City of Puyallup was awarded grant funds from the Salmon Recovery Funding Board (SRFB) with which the City utilized a consultant team to complete the feasibility study and 30% design for the Linden Golf Course Oxbow Setback Levee in 2012. The “Study Area” is located on the left bank of the Puyallup River from approximately river mile (RM) 9.6 to RM 10.5. The project considered a narrow range of alternatives within the study area and final recommendations included a design report and 30% design documents.


The SRFB grant was for $200,000 and included funding for a feasibility study and 30% design of the project. Tasks for this project included a comprehensive alternative evaluation with recommendations for future phases and involved several organizations with interest in the project which would support salmon recovery and spawning habitat as well as support to water quality improvements in the Puyallup River.
