The PRWC's mission is to restore, protect and enhance the environmental, economic and cultural health of our watershed, from Mount Rainier to Commencement Bay. We are citizens and representatives of businesses, governments and other groups collaborating to achieve clean water, healthy habitats and thriving communities.

In 2011, the Puyallup River Watershed Foundation and the PRWC merged to create one IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. On December 5, 2018, the PRWC was recognized as the Local Integrating Organization (PWR-LIO) for the Puyallup-White River watershed (WRIA10). The PWR-LIO is collaboratively developing an Ecosystem Recovery Plan for our watershed in 2020-21. Visit the PWR-LIO page to learn more and get involved!

With 1,040 square miles, this is a large watershed including urban, rural, agricultural, marine, forest, and a mountain! The 2018 population is estimated at 423,684 or 404 people per square mile.
