Drainage update 9/4/2018
Upcoming Drainage Hearings or Meetings:
Hope everyone enjoyed the extended Labor Day weekend. I can speak for myself in saying that it was a hot and humid weekend to be working outside. If the humidity wasn’t pleasant enough, local rainfalls of 4 – 7 inches poured over the Mankato area on Monday, September 3. I know rainfall totals vary greatly in just a couple miles' distance, but in my personal rain gauge at home I had over 4.50 inches from yesterday. Things don’t sound promising for today, as we are expecting yet another 2 – 4 inches of rain. Hopefully we get missed by today's storms and we can start to dry out again. Check out the lead-in photo of my rain gauge.
Recent Drainage Inspections – week of August 20 – August 24:
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.
