Upcoming Drainage Events:
Just wanted to highlight a couple of upcoming drainage events. The first event is the 2017 Agricultural Drainage Workshop. This event is put on by ISG and a couple other sponsors. ISG engineers, including Chuck Brandel, cover most of the topics. Topics for this year’s seminar include; Buffer strips acquisition, Drones for surveying and ditch inspection services, updated Minnesota Public Drainage Manual, and many more. This year’s seminar is held in Willmar, MN. For a full listing of this year’s topics and details on times and dates click on the Link. They ask that you RSVP for this event due to limited space.
BWSR (Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are combining their efforts to host three separate sessions to discuss the Minnesota Wetland Bank Program. Some of the topics to be covered at these seminars include; updates to BWSR Wetland Banking Fees, Revised application forms, Wetland Delineations and Pre- project monitoring, just to list a few. These sessions are directed towards those individuals that are currently enrolled in this program (account holders), other sponsors, agents and consultants that have dealings with Minnesota Wetland Banking Program.
The three sites chosen to hold these meetings are Grand Rapids, St. Paul and Mankato. For more details on times and dates please follow the link. Limited seats are available so RSVP is needed.

Upcoming Drainage Inspections:
Please call with issues you observe on our public drainage system, as there is a lot of open ditch and tile in our county and only two of us in the drainage department. We will do our absolute best to service your issues and concerns as we receive them.
