Akron Waterways Renewed


Water Quality in the Cuyahoga River is improving thanks to the dedication and investment of many

organizations and agencies. Akron Waterways Renewed, a restoration project of the City of Akron,

recognizes that one of Akron’s most valuable assets is its abundant supply of fresh water that benefits the

region’s economic growth and quality of life. Now, Akron is making the largest investment in its

environmental future in its 189 year history.


Learn how this investment will benefit life and recreation along the towpath and how the project is related to

the Gorge Dam Removal. Akron officials will be on hand to explain their program and point out on-going

construction projects that will be visible from our short hike on and near the towpath. After a walk along the

Tow Path, presenters will answer question while participants eat their personally provided sack lunch.
