Abstract:The new City of Damascus, Oregon, was included in the Portland Metropolitan Urban Growth Boundary in 2002 and incorporated in 2004. This previously rural area is faced with significant infrastructure challenges and opportunities, as they develop plans for a new urban city for the next 50 years. The city is characterized by a lack of existing urban built infrastructure, with large parcels of undeveloped land, intact ecosystems, and significant natural resources, with a population of 9,900 people in an area of10,000 acres. This setting provides an opportunity for the city to integrate and plan for the management of water resources, ecosystem services, and water infrastructure without the constraints and segregation of traditional water infrastructure solutions.The Integrated Water Resource Management Plan (IWRMP) ties together the City's current work in developing an urban land-use plan, with ecosystem services, stormwater management, and wastewater treatment/water reuse plans into a cost-effective, integrated plan for water management.
