Blue Earth County Judicial Ditch No. 34

Blue Earth County, MN | Agriculture

Overview

ISG worked with the County and landowners to provide key updates to a tile system in serious disrepair.


Opportunity

An aging failure-prone ditch system required significant repairs and community engagement efforts to move the project forward.

Solution

Blue Earth County Judicial Ditch No. 34's existing system was undersized and over 100 years old with many areas beginning to fail. ISG developed an improvement option to increase the capacity of the system and replace existing failing tile, working with both the County and landowners. The system drains into Eagle Lake, which is a public body of water, so ISG implemented a stormwater detention pond to offset increases in peak flow rates and prevent an increase in downstream flooding.
