The Blanchard River Flood Mitigation Coalition (BRFMC) Steering Committee meets as needed to discuss various issues pertaining to the river. The Committee recently was informed that over 50 structures in Ottawa have been purchased with grant money since 2007. This does not include the Arrowhead Mobile Home Park on West Main Street. It is uncertain if additional monies will be available to continue this purchasing program but there is a list of interested property owners if monies do become available. The design plans for the diversion channel are now 100% complete. An archaeological survey was performed and the results are still pending. The next meeting will be called as needed by the Maumee Watershed Conservation District.
