Road ditches are not county ditches. Road ditches are the responsibility of the road authority.
Establishing ditch buffers is not required for most repairs. Some repairs, such as re-sloping, require viewers and a buffer must be established.
Open ditch repairs include minor work such as spraying for weeds and brush, removal of isolated silt deposits, bridge or culvert cleaning, removal of vegetation, debris or other obstructions, fixing isolated side slope damage due to sloughing, fixing damage to culverts and fixing or installing erosion control stuctures.
Repairs may also involve more extensive cleaning of the ditch bottom of silt deposits to bring the grade line and bottom width to originally constructed or subsequently improved conditions.
Repairs on tile lines include repair or replacement of underground tile as well as the tile intakes and outlets.
