Before the dam came down … and after

The Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, which is part of our School of Environment and Natural Resources, has issued a report related to Columbus’s 5th Avenue dam removal project, which came to a head, or lowhead, as it were, last week. The report describes the background conditions in the Lower Olentangy River (its animal and plant life, water quality, etc.) before the dam was removed and predicts the changes we’ll see in it now. Read the park’s Aug. 29 announcement here (pdf), where you’ll find details on how to get the report.
