Project Overview

Numerous County ditch systems in Pennington County end at a natural drainage prior to outleting into a river or other watercourse and these outlets can be in a very erosive state. The goal of this project is to inventory these systems to determine needs and prioritize projects for implementation. In cooperation with the Northland Aerospace Foundation and the Northland Community and Technical College, our inventory will be accomplished utilizing the small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to collect the data needed to analyze the condition of these areas and use LiDAR to create maps that are georeferenced to find erosion and bank failures. By having a complete inventory, the legal ditch authority can be informed of the ditch system outlet conditions.
