CAMBRIDGE, MD - In response to the increasing threat of flooding in the city, leaders in Cambridge are working on new plans to address the issue, and they're urging homeowners to get involved too.

"The city... over time has seen more and more flooding and some things we call nuisance flooding," Jackson said.

Project Manager Larry White announced that plans have evolved, with discussions now revolving around a green infrastructure plan that would involve planting more vegetation throughout the city.
