The 2005 removal of the 3.6-m-high Munroe Falls Dam from the middle Cuyahoga River, Ohio, provided an opportunity to assess dam removal channel-evolution models and to anticipate impacts from additional dam removals on the Cuyahoga River. Preremoval geomorphic and sedimentologic conditions were characterized. Monitoring of the river response to dam removal has continued for 5 yr. The dam removal lowered base level and increased flow velocity upstream of the former dam site. Postremoval, the initial channel response was rapid incision to the predam substrate, followed by rapid lateral erosion of the exposed impoundment fill. Four to nine months after...
