Crews are working on the cleanup and restoration process following the removal of two dams in the city of Cuyahoga Falls. But Service Director Valerie Wax Carr says it's still a construction zone and she's asking the public to resist getting into the water between Water Works Park and Prospect Bridge.
She says there are many things in the water including rebar, glass and rocks that can cause injury to those who get in the water.
"Plus, there's just so much industrial waste. We are just amazed by some of the things we are pulling out of the water everyday," said Carr. "You really just need to be cautious down there."
Below is a two-minute time lapse video of the dam removal process released by the city of Cuyahoga Falls.
Teenagers have also been known to jump of the Doodlebug Bridge in the summer, but that activity is now dangerous because the water level is only 6 feet deep.
The first official river cleanup, with the help from the public, is scheduled for September 28.
