St. Anthony Falls is the only waterfall on the Mississippi River, the birthplace of Minneapolis and the centerpiece of the St. Anthony Falls Historic District. While the falls is often celebrated as a centerpiece of beauty and history for our City, less recognized are the myriad demands on the water flowing over the falls, including power generation and research into future ways to enhance and protect the Mississippi River.
Water Over the Dam will present a discussion of the different ways that our community depends on water flowing over the falls. We’ll talk about the falls from the Native American perspective, the industrial perspective, the recreational perspective and the economic one. Come join us! Light refreshments will be provided.
