Surveyor Ward stated that he is reviewing the 2016 Ditch Assessment Report at this time to present to the Drainage Board.








Surveyor Ward said Colin Finch, Veridus Engineering, Indianapolis, IN, contacted him regarding the drainage for the North White Primary Building. The Surveyor said the school was built in 1998 before the White County Drainage Ordinance was approved in 1998. The new addition on the north side will be approximately 9,270 square feet and the new storage unit is 500 square feet which is not connected to the new addition. The new addition is very close to the 10,000 square feet drainage ordinance rule and any further additions would activate a drainage permit. They have no intent to retain water and nothing to slow down the rate. He said if North White has any other impervious additions (sidewalks, parking lot) it will activate the drainage code at that time.


President Burton stated for the record and in the future if North White continues to build onto the primary building White County may require a plan for a drainage permit. He suggested to get more information from North White to make a decision.


Vice President Heimlich commented about the building addition overloading the Brown tile ditch which goes thru the Town of Monon.


Member Diener request their engineer provide their drainage plans to the Town of Monon and White County’s Surveyor for the records.


Attorney Loy advised the White County Drainage and Sediment Control Ordinance rules that if the drainage board feels there should be a drainage permit that they can request a permit.


The Drainage Board directed Surveyor Ward to contact the Town of Monon and ask if they have had any issues with flooding in regards to the John Brown tile system.




H.D. RENWICK #588 – CR 900 EAST

Discussion between Surveyor Ward and the White County Highway Superintendent Kyburz regarding construction and materials cost for the sinking area. They will be providing more information to the Drainage Board after the White County Engineer looks at the site.





No additional comments.



There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
