Falls Service Director Valerie Wax Carr and representatives of RiverWorks held an informational meeting at Lions Park Lodge recently to talk about the pending removal of two downtown dams. Nearly 200 people attended.
The Mill Dam, behind the Sheraton Suites, will be the first to go. Set-up should begin June 10, with work on the dam scheduled to start June 17. If the weather cooperates, the dam should be gone by July 1, when removal of the LeFever or Powerhouse Dam north of Portage Trail will begin.
