If the board of directors of any drainage district incorporated under the provisions of chapter 215 of the Session Laws of 1905, and amendments thereto, shall find and determine by resolution that the sanitary sewers of such drainage district are inadequate to meet the standards of the secretary of health and environment and that the alteration, enlargement, extension, improvement, construction, reconstruction, development or redevelopment of such sewers, including sewage treatment and disposal plants, facilities, interceptor and outfall sewers, are necessary and in the interest of public health and welfare, such board shall employ a competent engineer to make a report on the work necessary to be done and an estimate of the cost thereof, which said report and estimate shall be filed in the office of the secretary of such board.

Said secretary shall thereupon examine and consider such report and estimate, and if the secretary shall find and determine that the sanitary sewers of such drainage district are inadequate to meet the standards of the secretary of health and environment and that it is necessary and in the interest of public health and welfare that the work described in said engineer's report be done, the secretary shall approve said report and estimate, and thereupon the drainage district shall have power to do such work and to enter into contracts therefor and to pay the cost thereof, except that no sewage treatment or disposal plant shall be constructed inside a city limits or for the treatment of city sewage by a drainage district without the written approval of the governing body of a city.
