1. Whenever it shall appear to the board of supervisors, after the plan for reclamation has been filed with the clerk of the court organizing said district and work has progressed thereunder, that some of the ditches or other improvements called for in said plan are inadequate and are not affording or giving to the lands adjacent to such ditch or ditches or other improvements, substantially the same outlets for drainage or protection from overflow that are afforded other lands in the district equally taxed, the board of supervisors of said districts shall have the power, authority and right, upon the recommendation of its chief engineer, to enlarge or cause to be enlarged any ditches or other improvements set out in the plan for reclamation and to construct or cause to be constructed such additional ditches, levees, canals and other improvements that may be necessary to afford such lands substantially equal outlets for drainage and protection from overflow that are afforded the other lands in said district, equally taxed, as a whole.
2. A description of said additional ditches and improvements found to be necessary by the board of supervisors and its chief engineer shall be filed with the secretary of the board of supervisors and entered upon the record of said board, and a certified copy thereof shall be filed with the clerk of the circuit court organizing said district, and thereafter shall be a part of the plan for reclamation.
3. The cost of said additional ditches and improvements shall be paid for out of the benefits assessed against all the lands in said district as finally confirmed by the circuit court organizing said district, in the same proportion and in the same manner as is provided for in the constructing of ditches, levees and other improvements called for in the original plan for reclamation; provided however, that the cost of constructing the additional ditches and other improvements herein provided for, shall not be levied against lands that have been annexed or added to the district after it was organized, unless the additional ditches and other improvements to be constructed shall directly benefit the annexed lands.
