Description Current floodplain management policies in Puget Sound have led to significant development in floodplains, loss of aquatic and riparian habitat, and diminished floodplain function. The consequences include costly floods, declines of salmon and orca populations, and heightened risk to public safety. Climate change is likely to make these problems worse. A recent Biological Opinion details floodplain management problems in Puget Sound and the role that the National Flood Insurance Program plays... National Wildlife Federation's Pacific region.
