Ohio EPA Announces Canal Diversion Dam Project Meeting

Ohio EPA and The National Park Service will host a public open house on Wednesday, September 7, 2016, to discuss the results of an environmental assessment regarding the Canal Diversion Dam in the Cuyahoga River.

The meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Happy Days Lodge.

The environmental assessment was developed by Ohio EPA, The National Park Service, Cleveland Metroparks, The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Friends of the Crooked River.

The assessment identifies an ecological restoration strategy to improve water quality while preserving the Ohio and Erie Canal’s cultural integrity as a National Historic Landmark.

As a result of the environmental assessment, the proposed action for the Canal Diversion Dam is to completely remove the dam, restoring the river to its natural flow conditions.

A pump will be designed and built to provide the desired amount of water to preserve the Ohio & Erie Canal.
