Forty years from now, Mayor Coleman (the current mayor's grandson) will look out from his City Hall Tower penthouse office and think how grand the view would be if the river was dammed to create a wide body of water, with the bridges demolished and replicas of all of Columbus' original fleet serving as ferries.

The city income tax rate will rise from 15% to 17% to pay for it.

They could fill it with junk they need to get rid of first, then it could be a famous archealogical site of the 24th Century, after Mayor Coleman (great-great-etc. grandson of the current mayor) looks down from his levitating fortress-office in the clouds and decides to improve the view by removing the dam and restoring the "natural" flow of the river, which then uncovers the ancient artifacts.
