24-452. Sewers through levees; floodgates and pumping apparatus; duty of cities; costs. That whenever any drainage district shall include any territory that comprises a part of any incorporated city which has constructed or desires to construct any sewer or drain through any embankment or levee constructed by such drainage district along the bank of any watercourse, so as to have an outlet for such sewers into said watercourse, it shall be the duty of such cities to maintain efficient floodgates and pumping apparatus, and keep the outlet of such sewers closed during periods of high water, so that the water cannot run back through such sewers and cause injury to lands protected by such levee; and if any city shall neglect to perform such duty the board of directors of such drainage district may provide the necessary floodgates and pumping apparatus and collect the cost thereof from such city; and the city shall be liable for all damages, if any, caused by such neglect of duty.
