Another Farm Bureau Drainage School Scheduled


Indiana Farm Bureau’s annual Drainage School, a seminar focusing on Indiana drainage issues, will take place Thursday, Aug. 27, at INFB’s home office in downtown Indianapolis.

The seminar’s purpose is to promote an understanding of the laws and regulations that control drainage laws and dispute resolutions. It is open to farmers, public officials, agency personnel, attorneys and members of the public. Continuing education credits are being sought for attorneys and surveyors.

This year’s program features speakers on joint drainage boards; wetlands law; a state regulatory update; disaster response after a flood; levees; obstruction removal; Water of the United States regulations; and fluvial erosion.

Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.; the program runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Lunch is provided. Sign-up runs until Aug. 7 or until the program fills, whichever comes sooner. Those interested are encouraged to register early due to limited space. Registration is not complete without payment, and there will be no refunds after Aug. 7.

Register online at www.infarmbureau.org under the events menu. The seminar is $50. The registration fee includes a flash drive with all of the information. A hard-copy binder is available for $25. Contact Maria Spellman, 317-692-7840 or mspellman@infarmbureau.org, with questions.

The INFB home office is at 225 S. East St., Indianapolis.

The event is sponsored by INFB, Indiana Agricultural Law Foundation, Association of Indiana Counties, Indiana Association of County Commissioners, County Surveyors Association of Indiana, Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program.
