Sources of Water Damage
Water may enter a building by a number of routes. Water may come from external of internal sources. The water may be relatively clean or contain some degree of contamination.
 
Damage from wind storms or other cause may allow rain water to enter through the roofIce dams on sloped roofs can force water to travel under roofing material and into the building. 
 
Poor construction methods, faulty plumbing or water pipes that freeze and burst can result in water where it was never intended to be. The water may come from lines carrying potable (safe for drinking) water or the source could be a backed-up sewer lineFaulty appliances or damaged water beds may also be the cause of water damage. Flooding due to rising rivers or storm surge is another source.
 
The cause may due to accident, negligence or even intentional vandalism. A water loss is often associated with a fire loss due to the water used to control the fire.
 
High water table and capillary action may result in ground water rising into a building through the foundation. Hydrostatic pressure (the force of water in the ground outside a building) can push the water into a concrete foundation. From there water can find its way to other parts of the structure. 
 

Water damage may occur even without coming in contact with liquid water Hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) material will attract moisture from the air during prolonged periods of high humidity

Tumwater was founded next to the falls of the Deschutes River at the south end of Puget Sound as New Market in 1846 by a group of pioneers led by Michael Simmons and George Bush. It was the first American settlement on Puget Sound. These early settlers were attracted by the water-power potential from the falls, the easy access to Budd Inlet for shipping, and the open prairie land in the area for cattle grazing.

A major factor driving the Simmons-Bush Party to locate north of the Columbia River beyond Oregon Territory is that the American settlers in Oregon prohibited settlement by non-whites to avoid the contentious slavery issue. Bush, a mulatto, was not allowed to own land under Oregon law. Later, when the area north of the Columbia became part of US territory, white settlers petitioned Congress to grant Bush title to his land, which was approved.

The name was changed to Tumwater borrowing from a Chinook Jargon phrase tumtum chuck meaning “waterfall” or “rapids” (literally “heartbeat water”). Despite its early settlement date, Tumwater wasn’t officially incorporated until November 12, 1875.

For many years Tumwater was well known regionally as the home of the Olympia Brewing Company. The company began producing beer in 1896 at a site along the Deschutes River and continued until Prohibition. After Prohibition ended, a new brewery was erected just upstream from the original site. This brewery was eventually purchased by SABMiller and closed on July 1, 2003.
