If you are not sure your drain is a “regulated drain” (petitioned and under the control of the Wells County Drainage Board and your County Surveyor) you may call the office, or visit the GIS web site to view Wells County map, you will need to check box “Tiled Drains” under layers and zoom in on your location. To see information about the “Ditches” or “Tiled Drains” you must highlight on one of those names, then click on Identify icon, and then hover and click on the blue line for open and yellow line for tile.  http://www.wellscountygis.org

If you or your hired contractor want to make repair on a regulated drain, you first must call the Wells County Surveyor (260) 824-6414 prior to any work to be done  for approval and to receive payment.
