The Multnomah County Drainage District # 1 was established in 1917 and is the largest of the four districts, lying between PEN 2 on the west and SDIC on the east. It is approximately bound by the Columbia River on the north, 223rd Avenue on the east, the Union Pacific railroad tracks on the southeast, Columbia Boulevard on the southwest, and the Peninsula Drainage Canal on the west.
The district includes commercial and industrial enterprises, agricultural, residential development, golf courses, sloughs, and lakes. The larger properties in the area include the Portland International Airport and Blue Lake Park. This district lies within three jurisdictions: the City of Portland, the City of Fairview, and the City of Gresham.
