Ottawa Diversion Channel Project Moves Toward Eminent Domain Process

8/9/16 – 11:20 A.M.

The process of building a diversion channel for the Blanchard River in Ottawa has hit an expected bump in the road. During Tuesday’s Maumee Watershed Conservancy District meeting, members were told two property owners have not attempted to negotiate a price for their land. The conservancy voted on a measure to declare it “necessary to appropriate the land.” That means the eminent domain process will begin soon.

Notices will be sent to the landowners in question. They’ll have 28 days to respond, but can file for an extension. Negotiations for land rights can still take place during the process. Mediation is a possibility, but the cases could also land in front of a jury to determine a fair price.

The “100 percent” plans for the Ottawa diversion channel are completed. While a final price estimate wasn’t available, project manager Steve Wilson said he expects the price to be less than originally expected.
