Significant progress is being made on ditches

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

BENTON -- Officials of the Consolidated Drainage District No. 2 in Scott County have made significant progress on their ditches but aren't finished yet.

"We've been working on these ditches now for about three and a half years, hot and heavy," said Bob Laseter, president of the Consolidated Drainage District No. 2 board. "We've had complete cooperation with the exception of a couple of small landowners. The majority of the people are really happy for it. It's really made a big difference for Scott County."
