Columbia Lock and Dam, proposed for construction on the Ouachita River, will provide a navigable pool extending upstream about 105 miles to the Felsenthal Lock and Dam old Lock and Dam 6. The model investigation was concerned with the study of navigation conditions in the approaches to the lock and navigable pass to determine the adequacy of the proposed design and with the development of measures to overcome or minimize the effects of any adverse conditions. An undistorted model, scale 1100 model to prototype, reproducing approximately 2.6 miles of the Ouachita River and cutoff channel, including the lock and dam structures, was used for the investigation.
