Drainage within the Township

A reminder to landowners considering installing tile drainage on their property that they are obliged to take the collected water to a legal and sufficient outlet. This would be the path the collected water would naturally flow and one that does not cause harm to any land or road.  The availability of an outlet should be determined before work has commenced.

Please contact the Drainage Superintendent should you have any questions or if you require maintenance work on a municipal drain.
