PARMA, Ohio — For the last year, some Parma residents have fought tooth and nail to prevent a popular lake from being turned into a catch basin. Next month, crews will officially begin draining Ridgewood Lake to make way for the project.Officials say heavy rainfall frequently flooded the space, damaging homes and garages in the area for the last several decades.They believe the catch basin will now offer a permanent solution and a scenic space for residents.However, not everyone is standing behind the project.
