Detachment of lands in municipal corporation exercising drainage powers-
Effect of order detaching.
The detachment order so entered shall not operate to abate, or to
release the lien of, any assessment previously levied against the lands
detached or to relieve such lands from liability for assessment by the
drainage district for the purpose of paying indebtedness or obligations of
the drainage district outstanding at the time of detachment. Immediately
upon the entry of the detachment order, all drains, levees, drainage
structures and easements of the drainage district in the detached area
shall become the property of the municipal corporation without the payment
of compensation therefor, and the municipal corporation shall thereafter be
charged with the duty of keeping such property in repair.
