Ditch Cleaning

Birch Hills County will undertake road ditch cleanouts where it is determined that it is necessary for the proper maintenance of the road and drainage system.

Ditch cleanouts required as a result of farm management practices or to drain land may be refused or allocated a low priority.  When ditch cleanout requests are refused, Birch Hills County transportation staff will explain to the landowner the reason (s) for the refusal.

When a ditch cleanout results in the redirection of water or drainage of land, the project may be referred to Alberta Environment for their review and comments.
