ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is hosting an open house at Lock and Dam 6, near Trempealeau, Wisconsin, on Saturday, July 14, in conjunction with Catfish Days.

The lock, located at W24005 Road, Trempealeau, will be open to the public from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Catfish Days is an annual summer celebration held in Trempealeau.

“The lock provides a very economical way to transport goods up and down the Mississippi River,” Corps Lockmaster Rojean Heyer said. “And we’re excited at the opportunity to showcase our facilities to the community and answer their questions.”

The Corps is opening its doors to the public to demonstrate how a lock works and supports inland waterways navigation. Lock and Dam 6 is one of 13 Mississippi River locks managed by the St. Paul District as part of the system serving as a stairway for towboats moving commodities up and down the river.
