St. Cloud Dam

St. Cloud Dam

located next to the dam.

The dam is used by various hydrology classes at the nearby St. Cloud State University to demonstrate hydrodynamic properties and to show how power is converted into electricity.

During reconstruction of the dam in 1970, a cofferdam was built upstream from the construction site to hold back Mississippi River waters. Due to a structural inadequacy, the cofferdam washed out on October 31, 1970. The energy of the impounded water caused extensive damage to the construction site and downstream areas.
