Drainage Board

Jackson County Drainage Board

The Jackson County Drainage Board was formed under Indiana Code 36-9-27 and its subsections are the guidelines that the board follows to carry out its duties.  

Work performed for the Drainage Board is done through the Surveyor's office.  That division is responsible for the maintenance, construction, and reconstruction of the county's regulated or legal drains.  A watershed is determined for each drain and drainage assessments are applied through the offices of the County Auditor and Treasurer.
