    Sec. 2-2. Extension of covered drain through land of others.
    When it is necessary for the owner of land which may be drained by a covered drain to extend such drain through the land of others in the general course of natural drainage in order to obtain a proper outlet and the owner of, or other party interested in, the land through which such extension is necessary refuses to consent to the extension of the drain through his land, the person desiring to construct the drain may file suit in the circuit court in the county in which such land lies against the owner or other party so refusing, and summons shall issue in the same form and shall be returnable in the same manner as other summons in civil actions, and proceedings shall be had thereon as in other civil actions in circuit courts.
