Two (2) components of the drainage improvements are Major Drainage Courses, consisting of receiving basins and major drains, and Minor Drainage Courses, consisting of roadside ditches. To accomplish our objectives, both organizations have agreed to contribute $1 Million dollars for improvements, annually. All engineering and construction are administered by the EID. The County administers land acquisition and working space, as well as working with third-party utilities in relocations.
To date, the Partnership has provided improvements in:
- Cassils (2012 - 15 km's)
- Rolling Hills (2012 - 36.8
- Scandia (2013 & 2014 - 33 km's)
For 2016, the project location is Rainer and includes 66 km's of drainage improvements. The project is expected to take upwards of two seasons.
In progress are improvements in the Scandia area.
