Just saw this for those that fish the area. http://www.onnnews.com/story.php?record=30092 Cuyahoga River Dam May Be Removed May 3, 2004 State environmental officials say they want to remove the largest dam in the Cuyahoga River. Ohio Environmental Protection Agency officials say the Gorge Park Dam is an obstacle to improving water quality. State officials are scheduled to meet later this month with the dam's owner, Akron-based First Energy. The 58-foot-tall dam was constructed in 1912 over the site of the Big Falls. The dam provided water to power the Gorge Hydroelectric Power Plant from 1914 to 1958. Ohio EPA officials say the dam blocks fish and creates conditions that contribute to extensive algae growths downriver. But the biggest problem facing removal is cost. Tons of silt have accumulated behind the dam, and it could be contaminated with toxic chemicals that would be costly to clean up. © Associated Press and Dispatch Productions, Inc., 2004.
