Lucas County Engineer's Office has completed a study to help reduce flooding in
Sylvania Township along Ten Mile Creek.
study was conducted last August, and from that study they have created a plan

say they are in the process of working with township trustees to start the
project. Once they get the go-ahead, the earliest they could start construction
would be in 2016.
