RiverReach Construction, specialists in environmental stream and wetland restoration projects, peformed the demolition task quickly and efficiently using Atlas Copco hydraulic breakers equipped with underwater kits.

The first was the 12 meter (40ft.) long, 3 meter (10ft.) high Sheraton Mill dam. It had to be approached from upstream and RiverReach’s solution was to set a mini-excavator, with the SB 552 breaker attached, on a modular barge and float it into place just behind the dam.

‘Almost too easy!’
Operator Shannon Swaino began by using the SB 552 to open up “windows” and let the water flow downstream. The water level behind the dam then gradually sank. Next, Swaino entered the river with a 36-ton excavator and the powerful HB 3100. The dam came down in a day. “It was almost too easy with that big breaker,” said Swaino.

Next to be tackled was LeFever Dam 27.4 meters (90ft.) across and nearly 4 meters (13ft.) high, with a significantly larger volume of water behind it. RiverReach was able to construct an access to the river at the start and Swaino could approach it from the downstream side, so no barge was needed and the job was completed quickly.

Long-hidden white-water rapids reappear
The removal of the dams exposed the Cuyahoga River’s white-water rapids and waterfalls, which have been hidden from the local residents for a hundred years.
