Storms and rain accumulation over the past 24 hours has caused another delay for the dam removal project in Cuyahoga Falls.
Preparation and staging for the removal is complete, but officials say it's not safe for crews to begin working until the water level drops to around 200 cubic feet per second. It currently stands at more than more than 1,000 cubic feet per second.
Last week, high water levels forced officials to delay plans to remove the dams in the city. The first cut into the Sheraton dam due was scheduled for Wednesday.
No time has been set for when construction will begin.
City officials say the removal of the dams is expected to restore the river as it was 200 years ago, improving water quality and providing recreational activities for residents and visitors.
