Progress in Holland Marsh Drainage talks

Description : "If even the "tail end" of a hurricane were to hit southern Ontario, the Holland Marsh could face serious flooding, with damages in the $110-$200 million range. The problem? Since 1954, when Hurricane Hazel cause extensive flooding, the south canal has silted in. The Holland Marsh Drainage Committee is considering every option but even with the Roads department picking up a portion of the cost, the amount the marsh farmers would have to pay would be crippling."
