Areas in Washington's floodplains that are subject to 1% chance of flooding are considered frequently flooded areas. VSP works hard to restore streams and floodplain function in these areas.
VSP's work aims to limit flooding by protecting the infrastructure and health of Washington's floodplains and wetlands.
Areas in Washington that a subject to frequent flooding are prone to disruption by human activity as well as natural occurrence. VSP works to maintain and facilitate safe building and development as well as strengthening the wetland's inherent structure, to minimize damage to wetlands and riparian areas when flooding does occur.
