Environmental Services oversees the maintenance of the 550 miles of public judicial and county drainage systems and 150 miles of county tile in Sibley County. Our ditch inspectors inspect and maintain these ditches with ditch repairs, cleanouts, spraying and cutting trees.
Since 1977, every new and improved public judicial and county ditch should have one rod of grass strip (16 1/2 feet) on each side of a ditch.
Property owners may fill out the Ditch Repair Request form to request needed repairs. Environmental Services staff will review the request and determine if repairs are needed and when they can be scheduled. Property owners are encouraged to call the office at 507.237.4091 or come in to the office with questions or assistance to complete the form.
