Tier I acquisition and construction projects include: the design and construction of Puyallup River floodplain protection such as engineered log jams or flood fences at Kapowsin Creek; land acquisition for Orville Road Channel Migration Protection in preparation for later phases; land acquisition and structure removal in the Neadham Road flood hazard area in preparation for future levee setback; and land acquisition and structure removal in the Clear Creek/Lower Puyallup River floodplain, in preparation for later phases which will reconnect over 500 acres of floodplain that have been subject to recent flooding dramatically reducing flood risk while restoring critical tidal marsh habitat.
