Log Description

Thanks for helping us monitor progress on this dam removal and resulting river restoration. The dam on this site was built to power a mill that stood here until the 1930s. Dams that no longer serve their original purpose reduce the health of the river and its water quality. Photos of this site will help us to show how the health and water quality of the East Branch of Rocky River is improving. You can also help monitor other sites: nearby Astorhurst wetland, nearby Bonnie Park Wetland Restoration, Brookside stormwater bioretention, Chagrin River at Jackson Field, and Euclid Creek headwater restoration at Acacia Reservation.
