Lock and Dam No. 4 is one of five navigation lock and dam structures that comprise the J. Bennett Johnson Waterway on the Red River, and one of three that Natel will develop to add power generation.

Lock and Dam No. 4 was designed and constructed under the direction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The principal structures associated with Lock and Dam No. 3 are a 26- by 239-m (84- by 785-ft) navigation lock, a gated spillway containing five tainter gates, and a hinged crest gate 30 m (100 ft) wide. The project will be developed using 24 of Natel’s Restoration Hydro Turbines (RHTs) to generate an estimated 20 MW of electricity.
