Gavins Point Dam
Gavins Point Dam located near Yankton, SD is the last of the 6 main stem dams on the Missouri River. Water released from the five upstream dams is used at Gavins Point to produce hydroelectric power. The hydropower generators provide enough electricity to meet the annual needs of 68,000 homes. Controlled releases from the dam enhance navigation and minimize erosion on the Missouri River to St. Louis, Missouri.
