Cuyahoga River free-flowing again after dam removal in NP

BRECKSVILLE, Ohio – The Cuyahoga River in Brecksville is free-flowing and open for recreation for the first time since the Pinery Dam was built in 1827.

Crews have removed the dam and the Brecksville Diversion Dam, so paddlers can now travel the Cuyahoga River from Cuyahoga Valley National Park into Cleveland, the National Park Service announced Thursday.
