  2.  When such plans are complete for a definite district or subdistrict, the board of trustees shall adopt them by ordinance, and such ordinance, when published in one or more newspapers having general circulation in the sanitary district, shall be binding upon all persons, corporations and municipalities; and nothing shall be done affecting the drainage of any part of the district, other than ordinary farm or agricultural drains, by any person, corporation or municipality inconsistent with such plans or without the permission of said board of trustees.
