Water quality has been brought to the forefront of issues in Michigan as a result of the Flint water crisis. Delhi Township is looking to better understand the water chemistry of its local wells to maintain a high quality of water. At the Delhi Township Board meeting on April 5, the proposal for a groundwater analysis program headed by the United States Geological Survey was approved by the board. “All of the water in Delhi Township, and throughout most of our region, comes from the Saginaw Aquifer, which is a groundwater source. It is important to monitor the quality of that water source overtime to ensure that it is being protected,” said Tracy Miller, Director of Community Development for Delhi Township.
