Holt residents Bill and Linda Evans were tired of their basement flooding every time there was a storm. “Every time it would storm it would cost us at least $500 to have water removed from our basement,” Bill Evans said. “Plus we would have to replace anything that the water ruined.”

Those days may be in the past. In the spring of 2015, Delhi Township completed the Green #4 Consolidated Drain Project, a project three years in the making according to Delhi Township Supervisor C.J. Davis. “This project started the day I took office,” Davis said.
