Agricultural producers and landowners who are concerned with the need to dispose of excess water can initiate a group drainage project as well as a petitioned drainage project through our office.
Drainage processes follow the Ohio Revised Code, Sections 6131 or 940.
The disposal of excess water continues to be very important from an economic standpoint.
Water rights laws as they relate to the disposal of excess water in rural and urban areas are very complex.
Existing laws have been under development for a long period of time and continue to be reviewed and updated.
