In the spring of 1952, the maximum measured discharge of the Mississippi River occurred at the St. Anthony Falls Dam of the Northern States Power Company at Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a result of the high flow, considerable damage was done to the spillway surface and to the rock-filled crib supporting the structure. These model tests were initiated by the Northern States Power Company to determine a hydraulic design for a structure to replace the damaged spillway.
