Index of Floodplain Health
FFTF partners have identified a set of metrics for tracking progress toward shared goals for the Puyallup River Watershed. These metrics have been assembled into an Index of Floodplain Health which monitors the effects of FFTF actions and outside factors on farms, habitat, and flood risk reduction.
Together, these metrics help answer the question: how are we improving floodplain health in the Puyallup River Watershed?
Individual and integrated metrics are focused around three categories:
- Land: How do our communities interact with land in the floodplain?
- Investments: How are the investments we are making in integrated floodplain management helping us reach our goals?
- Outcomes: What are the outcomes of our work in the floodplain?
