June 23, 2015, Indianapolis – Indiana Farm Bureau’s annual Drainage School returns with a seminar focusing on the state’s drainage issues.

This year’s seminar will take place on Aug. 27 at INFB’s home office, located at 225 S. East St. in downtown Indianapolis.

The seminar’s purpose is to promote an understanding of the laws and regulations that control drainage laws and dispute resolutions. It is open to farmers, public officials, agency personnel, attorneys and members of the public. Continuing education credits are being sought for attorneys and surveyors.

This year’s program features speakers on joint drainage boards; wetlands law; a state regulatory update; disaster response after a flood; levees; obstruction removal; Water of the United States regulations; and fluvial erosion.

Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.; the program runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Those interested are encouraged to register early due to limited space. Registration is not complete without payment, and there will be no refunds after Aug. 7.

Sign-up runs until Aug. 7 or until the program fills, whichever comes sooner.

Register online at www.infarmbureau.org under the events menu. The seminar is $50. The registration fee includes a flash drive with all of the information. A hard-copy binder is also available for $25.
