It is responsible for flood protection along 27 miles of the Columbia River and protects significant industrial and economic land, one of the state's most important transportation hubs, the Portland International Airport and numerous natural assets. MCDD's work includes operating and maintaining levees and flood management systems for nearly 13,000 acres along the Columbia Slough and the lower Columbia River. In addition, MCDD staffs the Levee Ready Columbia partnership and the Columbia Corridor Drainage Districts Joint Contracting Authority. MCDD has evolved substantially over the past decade to become a solutions-oriented leader with our regional partners. In late June 2019, the Oregon State Legislature approved Senate Bill 431, creating an Urban Flood Safety & Water Quality District (UFSWQD) (ORS 550) within the urban growth boundary of Multnomah County. This new district is in the formation stage and focused on modernizing the operations, governance and funding of the existing districts. The UFSWQD remains focused on long-term flood safety needs but will incorporate environmental stewardship in the managed floodplain and support equitable outcomes. The initial board of directors are in the process of establishing a sustainable revenue structure to fund operations, maintenance, and capital improvements. MCDD staff will lead the work of this new district under the policy of the initial board of the UFSWQD. If you'd like to learn more, follow the link here.
