Gorge Dam might not be removed until 2023

CUYAHOGA FALLS It will be years before the Gorge Dam in the Gorge Metro Park is removed.

Representatives from the U.S. and Ohio Environmental Protection agencies, Summit Metro Parks and others involved in the project discussed the status of the dam removal during a two-hour meeting that drew more than 200 people at the Natatorium on Tuesday night.

The removal could also reveal the buried waterfall for which Cuyahoga Falls is named.
