The pool is the part that is filled up behind the dam like a pool. The part down stream from the dam is the tailwater. So, pool 2 is the water backed up by Lock and Dam #2 which is by Hastings. Pool 2 extends up to the Ford Dam which is Lock and Dam #1. Pool 1 is above the Ford Dam. Upper and lower St. Anthony Locks don't have a pool designation. Those are the ones by the U of M.

The rest of the pools along Minnesota are pools 3-8. Dam #3 by Red Wing down to Dam #8 by Genoa, WI. There are more lock and dams south of there, but we won't worry about those. cool.gif
