For several years, the Wilkin County Highway Department has been working with Houston Engineering, Inc. and the Wilkin Soil and Water Conservation District to repair and retrofit the drainage ditches in Wilkin County in the newly added BRRWD area. The retrofits include the installation of the required one-rod (16.5′) grassed buffer strips and side inlets. In 2019, one of the drainage systems that is scheduled for this type of work includes Wilkin C.D. No. 27. This ditch system has two branches and is approximately 6 miles long and lies along the west line of Sections 14, 23, and 26 and 15, 22, and 27, Foxhome Township. The Wilkin County Highway Department would be available to begin this repair work sometime this fall.
