Lock 33 ( more details)

Reconstruction of Lock 33.
Lock 33 is particularly vulnerable to floods as it is not high above river level. In addition, the proximity of the mouth of the Shenandoah, which is normally also in flood when the Potomac is, results in extremely turbulent waters at this point. As a consequence Lock 33 frequently suffered damage from severe floods.
