Wilson says the data includes land surveys for bench widening, coordination with area utilities, and consultation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and EPA.

Stantec should finish the preliminary plan in October. Wilson expects the engineering firm will have the complete plans done by next March. He adds changes to the Norfolk & Southern bridge will take longer to complete.

The plan only includes changes to the river in Findlay, not proposed dry storage basins.
