Ellicott City residents, business owners, property owners and non-profits are expected to meet the members of the mast plan team who developed a plan to reduce flooding on Main Street. 

Wednesday at 7 p.m. community members will be able to see the results of the Hydrologic and Hydraulic study results. The analysis includes how water retention controls and channel enhancements will reduce flooding in Main Street. 

The announcement comes nearly a year after historic flooding on Ellicott City's Main Street damaged dozens of businesses.
