COUNTY DRAINAGE BOARD - the Surveyor is an ex-officio, non voting, member of the County Drainage Board. In this capacity the County Surveyor is the technical authority on the construction, reconstruction, and maintenance of all regulated drains or proposed regulated drains in the county. The Board and Surveyor have jurisdiction over regulated drains. Regulated drains are drains established by either the Commissioners Court or Circuit Court of each county prior to 1965 or the Drainage Board since 1965. These drains are open ditches or tile drains or a combination.
The Surveyor also advises the Drainage Board in regards to compliance with the General Drainage Ordinance Establishing Storm Drainage and Sediment Control. The purpose of the ordinance is to reduce the hazard to public health and safety caused by excessive storm water runoff, to enhance ecomomic objectives and to protect, conserve and promote the orderly development of land and water resources within the county.
