42-725.Changing of boundaries; petition; approval of chief engineer; withdrawal of name from petition, when. The holders of title, representing one-half or more of lands which taken together constitute one tract of land located adjacent to the boundaries of an irrigation district or located within the same county as a part of an irrigation district, may file with the directors of such irrigation districts, a petition for the changing and extending the boundaries of such district to include such additional lands. The holders of title to lands located within the boundaries of an irrigation district may file with the directors of such irrigation district a petition for the changing of the boundaries of such district to exclude from the district lands which they own. The petition shall describe the boundaries of the proposed additional lands or lands to be excluded, and shall describe the boundaries of the several parcels respectively owned by each of the petitioners, but such description need not be more particular than is required by fractional portions of a quarter section of land. A certified copy of the petition and description of additional lands, proposed to be included in the district, or a description of the lands proposed to be excluded shall be filed with the chief engineer of the division of water resources of the Kansas department of agriculture. The board of directors of the irrigation district shall not take action upon such petition without the approval of said chief engineer. A signer upon such petition shall not be permitted to withdraw his name as a signer except for fraud, undue influence or mutual mistake of fact.
