Several Ohio members of Congress say they are not happy that the Army Corps of Engineers may wait until 2016 to issue a final report on a flood control plan for the Blanchard River.

U.S. Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown, and U.S. Rep. Bob Latta, say the timing is unacceptable.

Addressing flooding along the river has become a top priority for Findlay and the surrounding areas. Five major floods since 2007 have brought millions of dollars in damage.
