The Klamath County Drainage Service District (KCDSD) was created in 1980 to provide drainage of surface and storm water situated in the boundaries of the District.
Mandated Services: Responsible for the water, including the water quality entering the 1-C drain. The district only maintains the “backbone” infrastructure (i.e. 1-C Drain System) and does not include secondary or private ditches.
Department Overview: The KCDSD has no employees and does not own property other than a pump station inside of the KOA RV Park. It utilizes the services of the Klamath County Road Department and Enterprise Irrigation District for routine annual and/or emergency maintenance of drains serving the District. Most of the 1-C drainage ditch system is dedicated or deeded right-of-way owned by the United States Bureau of Reclamation or an easement to the USBR.
Successes and Challenges: Continue to monitor water quality issues.
Budget Overview: Major Revenue is $2 per month from each tax lot in the District Major Expenditures are reimbursement to Enterprise Irrigation District and the Road Department for annual maintenance.
