Celebrating 80 Years

The St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) is excited to be turning 80 this year!  Since we opened our doors in November 1938, SAFL has served society through its dedication to basic and applied research in river engineering, hydraulics, water resources, and more broadly, fluid mechanics. Education continues as part of our core mission, with over 500 University of Minnesota graduate degree recipients and thousands of visits from researchers and professionals throughout the world. 

An anniversary is always an occasion to be celebrated. We invite you to help us celebrate this year through a variety of activities and events posted along the right side of this page. Check back regularly to see updates and new listings!
