SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -
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
to reduce flooding in the area. Residents that live near the creek say they are
terrified of when the snow melts.
say flooding has been so bad, they actually keep a canoe handy just in case
they need to get to the street.
it does flood, it comes up to our knees," said Kimberlin Rumler. "Can't get
out, can't go to school, can't go to the store. We are pretty much trapped."
say they would like to see the $1.4 million plan the Lucas County Engineer's
Office has created be put in action.
you go up and down this whole street, everyone on this road would be for it,"
said Rodney Schmidt. "Anywhere along Ten Mile, it floods from here all the way
to Michigan and from here all the way through Sylvania."
plan calls for the creek to be widened from Prairie Road to half a mile past
Centennial. Engineers say they would not have to touch any existing buildings
or residences to complete the project. Money for the project would come from
capital improvement funds.
Dawn Metzinger, who built her house in 2000 and install five sump pumps in her
basement, the project is worth it.
had it flood so high before that people were stranded on the road," she said. "The
pond in the back, when it floods, we lose all the fish. They end up flopping
down the street."
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.
