River Description

Indian Run requires a huge rainstorm and then it will flash flood and start raging with incredible force.  Otherwise it is a trickle or even dry.  The city park forbids kayaking (but not canoes or rafts?) so you would want to get access somehow above the small park and not get off inside the park.  This means you want to scout the run on foot before you paddle to make sure it is free of strainers and to pick the lines on the big drops.  This is Ohio but the big falls on Indian Run are BIG and they would mess you up if you did them wrong.  Don’t play on this little creek gem if your not an excellent boater.

New Hydro Project for Cuyahoga (OH)

Thomas O'Keefe

The Cuyahoga River, the river that burned, played a pivotal role in the birth of the nation's river conservation movement. While restoration gains have been significant, a proposal for a new hydropower project on a dam targeted for removal would represent a signficant setback in ongoing restoration efforts and would delay for at least half a century any effort to bring back the lost whitewater that sits buried behind the Ohio Edison Gorge Dam. Paddler participation at upcoming scoping meetings is important.
