Lock and Dam No. 26 (Ill. and Mo.)
"The present Upper Mississippi River Canalization Program provides for a channel depth of nine feet, with suitable widths, at low water, in the Upper Mississippi River between the Missouri River and Minneapolis, Minnesota, and was adopted by the River and Harbor Act of July 3, 1930, as amended by Public Resolution No. 10, Seventy-second Congress, First Session, approved February 24, 1932. The establishment of this nine-foot channel requires the construction of twenty-six dams and accompanying locks - two of which were already constructed - at selected points throughout the distance between Minneapolis and the mouth of the Missouri River...This series of twenty-six locks and dams will effect an aggregate lift in the Mississippi River of 331.3 feet at extreme low water over a distance of 610 miles between Alton, Illinois, and the Northern Pacific Railroad bridge at Minneapolis"--page 10-11.
