6115.17 Right of entry for surveys and examinations.

(A) The board of directors of any sanitary district, or its employees or agents, including contractors and their employees, and the board of appraisers of the sanitary district and its assistants, may enter upon lands within or without the district to make surveys and examinations to accomplish the necessary preliminary purposes of the district, or to have access to the work. They shall be liable, however, for actual damage done, but no unnecessary damage shall be done. In the case of a district organized wholly or partly for the reduction of populations of biting arthropods, the board of directors or its employees or agents may enter upon any lands within the district and inspect them to ascertain whether the owner, tenant, agent, or other person having charge of the lands is complying with the regulations of the board of directors pertaining to the prevention and elimination of stagnant water or other breeding places for biting arthropods.

(B) No person or corporation shall prevent any entrance upon lands authorized by division (A) of this section. Whoever violates this section shall be subject to a writ of injunction issued upon application of the board of directors by a court of proper jurisdiction.
