More legislation approved for Fifth Avenue dam removal

Jul 20, 2012

Columbus City Council this week approved two more pieces of legislation clearing the way for the removal of the Fifth Avenue dam on the Olentangy River. In late June, Council approved legislation setting the stage for the 6.9 million dollar project. The Ohio EPA and Ohio State are sharing the project's cost. Sponsoring Council member Eileen Paley says the new legsilation sets aside more than 1.2 million dollars for construction and engineering services.
