Drainage Ditch Maintenance Program

This maintenance program is intended to keep natural and man-made drainage flow-ways free of vegetation overgrowth, which would allow higher stormwater levels in those conveyances, and minimize the risk of flooding during rain events.

This image shown here is a roadside ditch maintenance project along Starkey Boulevard. Many large ditch maintenance activities are contracted with independent businesses that are selected through the county’s competitive bidding process.
