The horizontal urban dispersion has blurred the boundary between city and countryside. The significance of landscape and water structure is emerging. In the case of north Taiwan, the metropolitan area of Taoyuan faces pressures from development and a resultant sprawl is consuming the open space of the territory. The dispersion on Taoyuan plain has to confront the agricultural landscape, which is composed of paddy field and an old irrigation system of man-made ponds and ditches since 3 centuries ago. Today, agriculture has diminished as a driver of the economy and the irrigation purposes of the ponds has been superseded by other uses - including fishing and recreation – or have been simply abandoned. The paper, by the investigation and literature, is to understand the actual dispersion together with it’s water network. In order to tackle the country’s pending water shortage, the paper proposed a scenario that assumes densification will continue and structures the new development by re-qualification of the area’s ponds and ditches. New plots are developed according to the carrying capacity of the nearby water network. In the post-kyoto time, the scenario suggests that the ancient irrigation network could be used as an alternative water resource for contemporary urban planning and design.
