About Mud Mountain – Mud Mountain Dam is a flood control dam protecting the lower White and Puyallup River valleys from flooding by holding back water from heavy rains and melting snow in its reservoir. Water managers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, slowly release water back into the river. Visitors to the facility, located on the White River near Mt. Rainier in Washington State, can view the dam, picnic, hike, bike or ride their horses in a scenic woodland setting.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the dam on the White River in the 1940s. The Corps also made channel improvements and built levees on the lower Puyallup River. Together, these structures have saved an estimated $308 million in flood damages. The project currently helps protect the homes and businesses of about 400,000 people. The dam regulates flooding by holding back water from heavy rains and melting snow in the reservoir, then releasing it slowly back into the river. The reservoir is usually empty, except for the normal flow of the White River. Completely filled, the reservoir would stretch 5.5 miles and cover 1,200 acres.
