Location: 5000 West River Parkway
The 30-foot damn was completed in 1917 and provides water depths necessary to maintain a 9 and 1/2 foot channel from St. Paul to Minneapolis. It is located at mile 848 of the Mississippi River and is one of 29 locks and dams that provide a water “stairway” from Minneapolis to the Gulf of Mexico. The dam is currently operated by Brookfield Power Company.
