but within the same natural drainage area, or involved in the same system of drainage
as the lands within the district, subdistrict or minor subdistrict, may connect his
land to any open ditch of the district, subdistrict or minor subdistrict, or, with
the prior consent of the commissioners, to any covered drain of the district, subdistrict
or minor subdistrict. Any connection so made shall be subject to the conditions of Section 12-1. When any such connection is made, the landowner involved shall be deemed to have
consented to the annexation of such land to the district, subdistrict or minor subdistrict.
