This Feature Dataset contains those public drainage system (as defined by Minnesota Statute 103E) layers where Sibley County, Minnesota is considered the legal drainage authority as defined in MS 103E. This feature dataset may include hydrographic features such as: ditch/tile centerlines and drainage areas (ditchsheds).<br/><br/>Follow the links below to the individual metadata pages for each layer:<br /><br/> <b>Ditchsheds</b>: <a href="">ditchshed.html</a><br /><br/> <b>Drainage Centerlines</b>: <a href="">drainage_centerlines.html</a><br /><br/> <b>Drainage Authorities</b>: <a href="">drainage_authorities.html</a><br /><br/> <b>Systems</b>: <a href="">systems.html</a>

Additional Info

Field Value
dsAccessConst None
dsCurrentRef Drainage systems were mapped based on a variety of sources including engineering drawings, aerial photos and LiDAR. The information should be considered the best available information at the time of the data updates to represent a planning level as-builts in GIS. There are often gaps in historical information, so it is advised to always consult the legal drainage authorities if questions arise. This dataset should not be used for any legal decisions.

dsPurpose This data resides in a geodatabase created through the Drainage Records Modernization and GIS Database Project to enable local drainage authorities to standardize their records in digital form for improved drainage management and planning. In addition, portions of it were intended for use in third-party hydrographic studies and modeling. These datasets represent the completion of a project that was funded through a BWSR FY18 grant to update drainage systems based on historical data review.
