Published July 7, 2021

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, Saturday, July 10, in conjunction with Catfish Days.

The lock, located at W24005 Lock and Dam 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.

Members of the community and surrounding areas are invited to meet lock staff, explore the facility, learn about water safety and catch a front-row seat as vessels lock through.

The St. Paul District’s navigation program provides a safe, reliable and cost-effective and environmentally sustainable waterborne transportation system on the Upper Mississippi River for the movement of commercial goods and for national security needs. To do this, the district maintains a 9-foot navigation channel and 13 locks and dams from Minneapolis to Guttenberg, Iowa. Keeping this system open is vital to the nation’s economy.
