Facilities at SAFL

St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) overlooks historic St. Anthony Falls in the heart of the bustling downtown Minneapolis riverfront district. This unique location allows SAFL to divert Mississippi River water from the upper pool of the falls into the building’s many experimental facilities, for rigorous hydraulic experiments. In addition to the established facilities, SAFL also has indoor and outdoor laboratory space, several experimental flex spaces, and a full machine shop. This allows researchers to develop and conduct a wide variety of experiments at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory.
