16000 the Puyallup River will cause major flooding from Orting downstream through McMillan to Sumner. Swift and deep flood waters will inundate roads...residential areas...and farms. Erosion will likely damage levees. Flooding will occur all along the river including headwaters...tributaries...and other streams within and near the Puyallup River Basin.
13500 the Puyallup River will cause flooding from Orting downstream through McMillan to Sumner...with flood waters inundating roads...residential areas...and pasture lands.
10000 the Puyallup river will flood low lying areas near Orting and along the upper reaches, including along Orville Road East south of Brooks Road, Neadham Road, and the vicinity of the County Subdivision/Tomolla Farm. High flows will also increase the threat of channel migration and bank erosion.
4000 the Puyallup River will locally spill over its banks.
