TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Ohio members of Congress say the Army Corps of Engineers plans to put up $1.5 million to move forward with a project aimed at finding a solution to flooding that has plagued areas of northwestern Ohio.

The money in the Army Corps‘ work plan for this year will go toward completing a study of how to control flooding along the Blanchard River and in the cities of Findlay and Ottawa (AH’-toh-wuh).

Addressing flooding along the river has become a top priority for those areas where five major floods since 2007 have brought millions of dollars in damage.

Democrats and Republicans in Ohio’s congressional delegation have been urging the Army Corps to fund the study. They say the flood-control project will spur economic growth and protect communities from devastating disasters.
