Collaborating for Multi-Benefit Floodplain Management
Partnering to Recover Floodplain in the Puyallup River Watershed
Tracking Outcomes Through Shared Monitoring
Floodplains for the Future is a partnership of stakeholders working to recover floodplains and protect the health and safety of communities around them.
We are implementing a long term vision that seeks to improve salmon habitat, protect communities and infrastructure from flooding, and preserve agricultural lands in the Puyallup Watershed.
Welcome to the new Floodplains for the Future website!
Check out the new Resources for Partners page to easily access all FFTF reports and documents in one place. Recent additions to this page include:
- The 2021 Annual Report, summarizing results from the previous year.
- A new Farmland Pressure Mapping Factsheet with results and key takeaways from the mapping project to better understand pressures facing agricultural land throughout the watershed.
We are a multi-organizational partnership working to support the recovery of floodplain functions and protect the health and safety of communities that live and work in and near floodplains in the Puyallup River watershed.
About the Watershed
As one of Puget Sound’s largest watersheds, the Puyallup River and its two main tributaries, the White River and Carbon River, drain approximately 1,040 square miles and flows from Mount Rainier to Commencement Bay.
What We're Doing
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.
