(70 ILCS 605/2-7) (from Ch. 42, par. 2-7)
    Sec. 2-7. Extension of covered drain through land of others-Abandonment of proceedings. If, after obtaining such a judgment, the plaintiff elects not to construct the drain and to abandon the proceedings, the court shall note such voluntary abandonment upon the docket. If the plaintiff fails to construct the drain within 2 years after obtaining such a judgment, the court, on motion of the defendant after notice and hearing, shall note the failure to construct and resulting abandonment of the proceedings on the docket. If the plaintiff abandons the proceedings, either voluntarily or by failure to construct the drain as set forth above, he shall not be permitted to commence another action against the defendant for the same purpose until after the expiration of 5 years from the rendition of the judgment. No such abandonment shall relieve the plaintiff of his obligation to pay the costs accruing in the action as set forth in Section 2-3.
