Drainage

Drainage districts were established for drainage of surface waters from agricultural and other lands for the protection of said lands from overflow when said protection is a public benefit or is conducive to public health, convenience, and welfare (Section 468.2, State Code Of Iowa).

Districts are established by the Drainage District Trustees at the request of the land owners within the proposed district (Section 468.6-468.8). Petitions and actions to establish are kept in the minute books in the county courthouse.

Requests for repairs should be directed to the drainage clerk in the courthouse. Complaints, problems, or questions can also be made to the Auditor's Office.
