Drainage System

Nobles County has 38 County and Judicial Ditch Systems.  These systems are made up of county drainage tile and drainage ditches.  Nobles County has approximately 400 miles of county tile and 47 miles of open ditches.  Drainage Systems were created in the early 1900’s in order to provide adequate drainage for agricultural lands.

All repairs are done by Nobles County.  If you have a repair request or concern, please contact the Nobles County Drainage Coordinator.
