The present Act provides for agreements between land owners to build, widen or deepen ditches to remove run off from their properties. The agreements apply to new owners of the same lands until the municipally appointed engineer decides otherwise. The ditch cannot affect other owners’ lands without their consent. The Act provides dispute resolution mechanisms for disputes between owners who have entered into these agreements. The municipal clerk is the contact person in the case of disputes. The text consists of 28 sections and 1 Schedule.
