Encyclopedia > White River (Washington)

The White River in Washington state flows around 75 miles from its headwaters near Mount Rainier to its confluence with the Puyallup River at Sumner.

Before 1906, the White River joined the Green River near Auburn, and the combined river (under the name "White") joined the Black River at Tukwila to form the Duwamish River, which empties into Elliot Bay at Seattle. In 1906, a great flood diverted the White River southward via the channel of the Stuck River into the Puyallup River. The Puyallup, which empties into Commencement Bay at Tacoma, remains its outlet today.

The Coosa River Basin is one of the rainiest places in the US, with the average precipitation rate ranging from 52 to 64 inches per year.
The French believed that the Coosa River was a key gateway to the entire South and they earnestly wanted to control the valley, since the main transportation of the day was by boat.
The first river town to form in the Coosa Basin settled at the foot of the last water falls on the Coosa River, the Devil’s Staircase, with the town name Wetumpka (or "falling stream") adopted shortly thereafter.
