Athens Flood Plain Task Force reports
(2007-11-14)
(WOUB) - The Athens Flood Plain Task Force says the city had better impose tougher regulations or suffer the consequences -- disastrous flooding.

The group delivered its report to city council last night.

Elaine Goetz led the Task Force...and she says the flood control measures on the Hocking River many years ago have become less effective over time.

The Task Force is offering several recommendations for improvements.

City Council Planning and Development Committee Chair Debbie Phillips says they'll get to work on those right away.
