The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers has a crew in Boardman Wednesday, touring some of the areas hit hardest by flooding in recent months.

Township Administrator Jason Loree tells 21 News there are several reasons behind the flooding, ranging from construction practices in the 1980s to 1930's-era drainage channels.

Loree says township officials hope to get guidance and possibly funding with an up-close look at the issues.

“We're going to show them some of the water courses that constantly get the flooding. We have Drake's run that goes into Yellow Creek, which goes into Poland,” said Loree. “We have Cranberry Run, Sawmill Run. They ultimately go into Mill Creek Park. So we're going to watch those, have them look at those areas.”

Loree says one of the most significant issues is finding available land for water retention areas since there's been so much development in Boardman over the years.
