On December 12, 2012, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued a nationwide permit, which will allow for the removal of the two low head dams located in Cuyahoga Falls.
Cuyahoga Falls is excited to have this long awaited project begin to move forward. The city and its project team, RiverWorks, and the Ohio EPA are finalizing demolition plans. Demolition will begin early summer of 2013, dependent upon weather conditions and water levels.
Due to the high response of the first public outreach session, a second session has been scheduled at a new date and location. This outreach session will help to inform the public of the importance of the dam removal and what is in store for the Cuyahoga River in the near and long term future. This one hour meeting will take place at Lion's Lodge, 641 Silver Lake Ave. on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.
