I have a drainage easement in my yard that has a ditch (or pipe) in it. Can I put a fence/shed/retaining wall/pipe/swimming pool/landscaping in the easement?
The Murfreesboro City Code requires any plan to modify a public drainage easement be approved by the city engineer. Contact the department at 615-893-6441 to make a request.

Sheds, swimming pools, detached garages, and other similar construction are not permitted to encroach in a public drainage easement. Some requests will also require a permit from the Building and Codes Department.
