PETITION DITCHES AND TILES 


All petition ditches and petition tiles are inspected annually by the staff from the Drainage Department. Through these inspections and the maintenance requests from affected landowners, maintenance projects are completed throughout the year.


In order to better maintain the petition ditches that are under the maintenance program, the Putnam County Engineer has decided to spray half the county one year and the other half the next year. We will spray the East half in the even numbered years and the West half in the odd numbered years.


Each ditch under maintenance has an easement located along the top of the bank.  This easement is to be utilized by contractors for any maintenance work and crops planted inside this easement will be subject to damage without compensation.  Please plan for this damage accordingly.


After requesting quotes for the 2019 ditch spraying program, First Klass Lawn Care was selected as the low bidder.  Their approximate start date is May 20, 2019, and the anticipated completion date is August 15, 2019, weather permitting.  If you have any questions regarding ditch maintenance, please contact the Engineer’s Office at 419-523-6931.
