Elyria delays trash pickup, closes Cascade Park

By daybreak, it was decided this morning to suspend trash collection.

No, the roads were fine, but the biggest worry, said Safety Service Director Mary Siwierka, was trucks tipping over after being emptied at the landfill.

Trash service is delayed one day this week as a result.

Cascade Park is closed until further notice.

There is a lot of water in the park, but as of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday the Nature Center, which is prone to be inundated with water in flood situations is dry.

There is roughly 15 feet of water in some areas of the park. Moderate flood stage is 14 feet.
