A partnership to recover floodplain functions and protect the health and safety of communities around them.
The Floodplains for the Future collaboration is implementing a long-term vision that seeks to improve habitat for salmon, protect communities and critical infrastructure from flooding, and provide new opportunities for recreational and cultural uses while preserving agricultural lands in the Puyallup Watershed. FFTF partners invest in the long-term vision when they fund studies, projects, and implementation of their capital improvement plans in the watershed. FFTF partners also make substantial investments in the vision by dedicating staff time to efforts that improve floodplain health. The FFTF has also received funding from the Washington Department of Ecology’s Floodplains by Design program to fund several actions that contribute to the long-term vision.
We are a multi-organizational partnership working to support the recovery of floodplain functions and protect the health and safety of communities the live and work in and near floodplains in the Puyallup River watershed.
Integrated Floodplain Management
As partners, Floodplains for the Future adopts a collaborative approach to decision-making that brings together multiple interests to find shared solutions for our floodplain areas.
High-level metrics have been selected by Floodplains for the Future partners to track progress toward shared goals and the health of the floodplain from a multi-benefit perspective.
