This improvement required coordination among two Drainage Districts for an extension to an open ditch, and installation of new surface drain and extension pipes, and junction structures. The Project required right-of-way negotiation and acquisition, acquiring wetland determinations from landowners, annexation of additional lands, and reclassification of the District. Following a wetland determination, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) found all acres to be classified as ‘prior converted,’ and therefore no mitigation was necessary.
