Who Owns the Ditch?

Webinar: Who Owns the Ditch? Best Management Practices for Roadside Pollution from Agriculture Production

Date: TBD

When it comes to roadside ditches, who owns the ditch? Is it the farmer whose agriculture production drains into it, or the local highway department who maintains it? While the ditch may be on private land, the local highway department typically maintains it.

About: This webinar will explore the ownership dilemma as well as go over best management practices for preventing ditch erosion as a result of agriculture runoff and protecting water quality, and provide skills for communication between the highway department and the landowners about this topic.
