Across the Mississippi River, a dam runs along it right above Browns Island. The dam is located at pool number 22. The dam was man made and serves as a barrier that restricts the flow of water, stores water to compensate for fluctuations in river flow/water/energy, and to raise/lower the level of water upstream. The dam helps prevent flooding by releasing and storing water to divert the water from reaching land and causing mass flooding. This dam serves as a good example because of its large size and how well it is developed.
