Beltrami County Highway Department

Public Drainage Ditches

The County Highway Department assists in the maintenance and management of the Public Drainage Ditches in the County. Beltrami County has 1,050 miles of public drainage ditches. The County Board of Commissioners acts as the Ditch Authority with the Highway Department acting as the Ditch Inspector and or Ditch Engineer as needed.  Landowners along these public drainage ditches may occasionally need to submit a Request For Ditch Repair when a ditch requires maintenance attention.  If a landowner wants to work on a ditch, there is a process in place to ask permission that begins with completing a Judicial Ditch Permit Application. Ditch information is shown on the Beltrami County GIS Mapping Program. For more information, contact the Beltrami County Highway Department.
