To increase runoff absorption, curves to be added to Cuyahoga River as it passed through NP

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The federal government is about to spend $15 million on a new push to restore the Cuyahoga River by adding more twists and turns to its sections that traverse Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The river - whose name derives from a Native American word that means “crooked” - will have between 3/4 of a mile and 1 1/2 miles of curves added to its length under a new U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
