DRAINAGE MAINTENANCE

Drainage way maintenance is perhaps the most important component of our IPM Program.  York County is proud to employ three ditch maintenance crews; each comprised of four workmen.  Workloads for each crew are delegated by election district.  The crews aim to clear every County maintained ditch at least twice per year.  Ditch maintenance work is difficult and is all done manually using hand operated equipment.  Over 100 miles of ditches are manually cleared every year.  The ditch crews are also instrumental in debris clean-up and removal in the event of a large storm event.
