The upstream side of the sluice gates at the Lockport Controlling Works looking northwest, September 15, 2017. The control building addition at the south end improved the work space for operators who must spend long hours in inclement weather when the gates are open during flood operations. During dry weather, there is no staff at this facility. The structure has changed little in over 100 years. (Photo by author)
