FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is asking residents near the northwestern Ohio city of Findlay to help with mapping a diversion channel that’s part of its flood control plan for the area.

The Courier newspaper (https://bit.ly/1NHcDWp ) in Findlay reports the agency wants residents to let it know about historic properties or places of cultural value that might affect the nine-mile diversion channel.

The Army Corps has proposed building the channel to help divert floodwater away from the city.

It is part of a proposed $60 million project to reduce flooding along the Blanchard River.

Controlling flooding along the river is a priority in Findlay, where five major floods have caused millions of dollars in damage since 2007.
