The Drain Commissioner also approves drainage in new developments, subdivisions and maintains court decreed lake levels. The office also is the administrator for the Cass County Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Program along with the Cass County Survey & Remonumentation Program.

“Both residents and visitors of Cass County enjoy the beauty of over 250 lakes and ponds, along with numerous streams, creeks, and wetlands that offer some of the best boating, fishing, swimming, wildlife habitat, and other recreational opportunities in Southwest Michigan. Maintaining county drains is critical to our economy and our quality of life. Managing decreed Lake Levels and protecting the waters of our county through a strong Soil Erosion Program will ensure the protection of these waters as one of our county’s most valuable resources for our current and future generations.” – Bruce Campbell, Cass County Drain Commissioner
