Drainage update 8/4/2020
Upcoming Drainage Hearings or Meetings:
Blue Earth County has recently started hosting board meetings and some drainage hearings virtually. Blue Earth County staff has been using a combination of live-streaming video and conference call-in options. Notices sent out for drainage hearings will include all necessary information for our constituents to attend these hearings virtually via internet or through the call-in option.
Hats off to our neighbors to the north, Anoka County SWCD (Soil and Water Conservation District) for putting together an exceptional conservation video. Anoka SWCD produced an informational video for YouTube titled, “Our Lakeshore Connection”. This is a video that summarizes and shows much of what we constantly talk about, when talking water quality.
The video is intended for general knowledge to the general public, most importantly those whom live along our waterways. It’s a simple explanation of water health, water quality impacts, helpful tips for water quality, all with fun animation. Without further explanation, click the link to view the video for yourself. Well done Anoka County SWCD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery&v=dwjAoRwLrmM
Recent Drainage Inspections:
Do you have questions or topics about drainage that you would like to here more about? If you would like me to incorporate those concerns or topics in one of my future blogs, please feel free to email me at the listed email address below.
We have multiple contractors making repairs across the county currently. Please report repair issues to our drainage staff as soon as you notice them, as this will expedite the time in getting those repairs made.
We require that all repairs to a county drainage system (tile or open ditch) be authorized by one us in the drainage office, either Craig or myself, before any repairs are made.
