Further to carry out and make effective the purposes of this act it is hereby made the duty of the board of county commissioners of each county to make, or cause to be made, before June 30 of each year, a complete survey of the county with respect to soil erosion and dust, any plant or weed blowing from soil in the county. In doing so they shall ascertain what lands, plants or weeds have blown, and for what time, the kinds of soil of such lands, the kinds of plants or weeds blowing, when the blowing occurred, climatic conditions at the time, and what, if anything, was done to prevent or minimize the blowing, and the result produced by what was done.
