The News today has an extensive article on the idea of removing Argo Dam, allowing the Huron to run freely between Barton and Geddes Ponds, uncovering 40 to 50 acres of (city-owned) land, which would likely be used for parkland, and saving $20,000 a year in maintenance costs. Opposed is the local rowing community, which relies on Argo Pond.
