By Mike Conroy. CREATED Mar 19, 2014

APPLETON, Wis. -- Outagamie County Emergency Management met Wednesday morning to outline potential trouble spots for flooding as the Spring thaw gets underway.

The agency focused on areas within the Fox River Watershed Basin and ways to ease the threat for high water problems in that region.

The area covers portions of the Fox and Wolf Rivers where the ice buildup was thicker this winter than in past seasons.

See the news conference below for more on the plan from today's news conference with the Outagamie County Emergency Management office.
