Eight engineering firms are interested in designing a diversion channel for Eagle Creek south of Findlay. The Courier reports the packets from the companies were opened at a special Hancock County Commissioners meeting in Arlington Monday night. The commissioners have not made a decision on if the county will move forward with an accelerated timeline for the diversion channel or wait for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to finish their study. The Corps plan could take another year to finish.
During the meeting, Arlington Mayor Ed Solt voiced his concern about the proposed channel, saying that the project would “affect us too.” Diversion channel opponents have argued water could back up into Arlington if the channel is built.
