The foundation of many cities was based on their proximity to water. Founded in 1842, Durham is one such city in Ontario. Due to the river encircling half of the city, it became one of the first cities in Canada to become self-sustaining. Since its founding, Durham has grown tremendously and, although the threat of flooding is always a possibility because of the three dams in the city, it continues to grow with each passing year.

Durham spreads over a total surface area of 4.62 square kilometers (1.78 square miles) and has a population density of 572 individuals residing per square kilometer (1,484 individuals per square mile).
