Restoration and Revitalization After the Dams Fell

Date: Sunday, June 25, 2017

Time: 12 PM – 2 PM

Place: River Front Park, 2641 Front St., Cuyahoga Falls OH 44221

Presenters: Elaine Marsh, Watershed Specialist, Summit Metro Parks; Rabecca McCleary, Public Utilities

In 2013, the City of Cuyahoga Falls removed two dams from the Cuyahoga River. Since then, Cuyahoga

Falls continues to focus on its riverfronts. River Front Park is an example of city’s ongoing efforts to restore

water quality and expand recreation in the Cuyahoga River.


Learn about the city’s clean-up efforts, erosion control projects and water recreation development. Also, the

University of Akron, Department of Geology will discuss their geological studies of the dam pool. If you are

willing to get your feet wet, you can get an introduction to the science sediment transport. After a short walk

along the river, presenters will answer question while participants eat their personally provided sack lunch.

A quick riverbank clean-up will follow for those who wish to participate.
