The list includes a world renowned 100-yearold shoe company, a correctional facility, two incinerators, a double-reactor nuclear plant, Mdewakanton Sioux Indian reservation, a casino and U.S. Lock & Dam No. 3. The city enjoys a working riverfront as well as two bustling harbors. Up to 7,000 loaded barges transporting more than 10 million tons of products pass through the dam just north of Red Wing every season. Farm products account for at least half of that, followed by chemicals and crude materials. The shipping season typically runs from mid-March through late November. U.S. Lock & Dam No. 3 is among the busiest on the Upper Mississippi River.
