Removal of Cuyahoga Falls dam scheduled to begin Tuesday

Beacon Journal staff report

CUYAHOGA FALLS: Work on removing the Sheraton Mill Dam on the Cuyahoga River is scheduled to begin between 9 and 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The initial test cuts, initial hammering and vibration monitoring will commence, the city of Cuyahoga Falls said Monday, weather permitting.

If the tests are successful, the full demolition then would commence, the city said.

The removal of the dam has been delayed by high water in the river due to heavy thunderstorms that have occurred over the past several days.

The LaFever Powerhouse Dam also will be removed.

The city received $1 million from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to remove the two dams to improve water quality in the river.
