Here is a website that allows you to go to a spot and it will give you the Lat/Long coordinates;

http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html  

The satellite image shows the locks and flood gates very clearly.  It also shows a boundary line.  If the Lat/Long data is accurate you should be able determine which floodgate is in which state.

My numbers list the floodgate walls from west to east, W0 is the western most wall the first spillway from the west:

WO = 38.867125 / -90.154694
W1 = 38.867426 / -90.154468
W2 = 38.867714 / -90.154222
W3 = 38.867977 / -90.153970
W4 = 38.868299 / -90.153744
W5 = 38.868562 / -90.153487
W6 = 38.868830 / -90.153208

West wall of Locks = 38.868855 / -90.152264

State Line = 38.868458 / -90.153621   which is the middle of the 5th spillway from the west bank.
