•Drains that run through yards and fields are the responsibility of the Drain Commission or the Homeowner
•RESIDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN DRIVEWAY CULVERTS
Roadside ditches help prevent roadway and lawn flooding, therefore MCRC URGES RESIDENTS TO REFRAIN FROM FILLING IN ROADSIDE DITCHES WITH LAWN MATERIAL OR DEBRIS THAT MAY INHIBIT WATER DRAINAGE. Trees or shrubs should not be planted near roadside ditches, as they not only inhibit drainage ability, but also produce hazards to motorists. Also, plantings must be at least 33 feet from the center of the road.
