Drain Construction Projects

Under the Michigan Drain Code, the County Water Resources Commissioner can spend up to $5,000 per mile of drain on maintenance and repairs to a county designated drain. Any necessary repairs costing more than this allowable amount requires a drain petition, township resolution, or emergency situation.
