Statutory Drain Board

Statutory Drain Board

The Statutory Drain Board meets monthly in the Office of the Water Resources Commissioner to oversee the management of drains established under Chapter 20 of the Michigan Drain Code, which are established for the public health, convenience or welfare. Chapter Twenty-one provides for procedures in multi-county projects. They parallel the Chapter Twenty procedures with a few exceptions.

A three-member board consisting of the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner, the Chair of the Board of Commissioners, and one additional member of the Board of Commissioners is charged with oversight of Chapter 20 and 21 drains. The members of the Washtenaw County Statutory Drainage Board in 2013 include Water Resources Commissioner Evan N. Pratt, P.E., County Commissioner Yousef Rabhi and County Commissioner Conan Smith.
