DrainageDB Online Portal:

Le Sueur County has purchased with grant funding from BWSR a drainage portal.  Through this portal you can access drainage system information, the status of repairs and historic documents.

This software is a comprehensive web-based drainage management portal this is used by many Minnesota counties and watershed districts to track ditch system proceedings.  Through Drainagedb, Le Sueur County is able to offer 24/7 online access to historical and present documents for public view.  These documents may include original plan maps, orders by the Drainage Authority, petitions for repairs and improvements, inspection reports, meeting and hearing notices, and redetermination documents.

It is our goal to have all ditch files available on this site, however, at this time we are focusing on uploading current documents. If you would like to request information on a specific ditch file, please email daniblaschko@co.le-sueur.mn.us
