CUYAHOGA FALLS: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued a permit to allow for the removal of the two low head dams in Cuyahoga Falls.
The city and its project team, RiverWorks, and the Ohio EPA are finalizing demolition plans. Demolition will begin early summer of 2013, dependent upon weather conditions and water levels.
Two public meetings have been scheduled to explain the purpose of the dam removals and near- and long-term plans.
These one-hour meetings will take place in the Sutliff Room at the Cuyahoga Falls Library, 2015 Third St., at 2 p.m. Jan. 16 and 7 p.m. Feb. 20.
