The Wells County Drainage Board was formed on January 3, 1966 under Indiana Code 36-9-27 and it’s subsections are the guidelines that the Board follows to carry out it’s duties.
The Drainage Board manages the construction, reconstruction and maintenance of all regulated drains or proposed regulated drains in the county as required by State Law. The Board and Surveyor have jurisdiction over regulated drains. Regulated drains are drains that have been established by either the Commissioners Court or Circuit Court of each county prior to 1965 or the Drainage Board since 1966. These regulated drains are open ditches or tile drains or a combination of both.
