In simple terms, working as a lock keeper or assistant involves transporting boats and canoes between lakes with varying water levels by means of a lock. The main difference between the tasks of the keeper and assistant is that the lock keeper manages and plans all work relating to the lock. The lock keeper oversees all relevant administration. As an assistant, you will help to maintain the lock alongside the lock keeper.
