For decades the City of Toledo, Ohio has been adversely impacted by persistent annual flooding. Widespread damages to homes, business, and public infrastructure coupled with local economic decline has driven city officials to begin searching for alternative ways to mitigate flooding. In 2012, the City of Toledo, NOAA, ASFPM, ERG, and USACE partnered together to evaluate is green infrastructure would be a cost-effective solution.
