Elaine Marsh, award-winning Watershed Specialist with the Summit Metro Parks, comes to the Hudson Library & Historical Society on August 17 at 7 p.m. to tell the story of the 100 year Gorge dam, its possible removal and current issues facing the Cuyahoga River. The Gorge Dam is a fascinating tale of gravity and water, of scenic beauty, water contamination, and competing economies. March will discuss how our vision for the use of the Gorge has evolved and the transformative benefits of dismantling the dam.
