Drainage Ditch Maintenance Program
The ditch maintenance program is part of the overall Operation and Maintenance Program of the Stormwater Division. The maintenance is intended to keep natural and manmade drainage flow-ways free of vegetation overgrowth which would result in higher stormwater levels in those conveyances, thereby minimizing the risk of flooding during rain events. The graph at right shows currently available monthly data on ditch maintenance.

Drainage Ditch Maintenance Reports:
The Road and Bridge Division provides monthly reports that summarize the monthly total linear footage of ditches maintained along with summaries of other drainage maintenance activities.
