The board of appraisers of a conservancy district shall prepare a report of its findings that shall be known as the conservancy appraisal record. The record shall contain the name of the owner of property appraised as it appears on the tax duplicate or the deed records if ascertainable from them, the tax mailing address or other known address of the owner if ascertainable, a description of the property appraised, the amount of benefits appraised, the amount of damages appraised, and the appraised value of land or other property that may be taken for the purposes of the district. In case benefits are appraised accruing to a public corporation as an entity, the name and, if ascertainable, address of the public corporation and the amount of the benefit appraised shall be entered in the record. The board shall also report any other benefits or damages or any other matter that, in its opinion, should be brought to the attention of the court. No error in the names or addresses of the owners of real property or in the descriptions of the property shall invalidate the appraisal or the levy of assessments based on it, if sufficient description is given to identify the real property.
When the report is completed, it shall be signed by at least a majority of the board and deposited with the clerk of the court, who shall file it in the original case. At the same time, copies of that part of the report giving the appraisal of benefits and appraisals of land to be taken and of damages in any county shall be made and certified to and filed with the clerk of the court of common pleas of that county.
