Free the Falls: Bringing Down the Gorge Dam
August 17, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
For 100 years, Gorge Metro Park has coexisted with a 420-foot-wide, 60-foot-tall dam. Now, that dam is being studied for removal. This presentation will examine the interwoven story of the Gorge Dam, the Cuyahoga River and the park itself, plus the benefits of dam removal. The tale is one of gravity and water, of scenic beauty and contamination, and of competing economies. Mainly, it is the account of how our vision for the Gorge has evolved.
